Our NEXT “HCx3DP Meetup NY” Is Thursday, 12 March: Come Join Our Growing “HCx3DP Synergist” Community At The iMakr Store New York On The LES

We’re continuing to build Community—here in New York City—at the new and exciting intersection of what we’re branding HCx3DP: or, “Healthcare Multiplied By 3D Printing.” One of our major tools for fostering this novel group of sector leaders, technologists, business people, non-profit players and ‘Preneurs—pursuing commercial and common-good opportunities—is our new “HCx3DP Meetup NY.”

HCx3DP MUp NYCome out to our fourth Meetup event in our first five months of making things happen! Meet—and mix-it-up—with new members, new technologies, new markets and new ideas.

To provide you with the complete overview of our 12 March Meetup, I’ve embedded the text of our Event description—from our Meetup.com pages online.  This month we also are privileged to enjoy the support of two new—and important—sponsors. These are iMakr New York and the New York Chapter of the Internet Society. Read on and learn all about why you should join-in with us…AND RSVP to save yourself a place…in the Future!

Welcome HCx3DP Synergist! (…Present or Prospective…)

Land Grant, Founder/Publisher, 3DP Media & Organizer, HCx3DP Meetup New York, speaking on a NYC Health Business Leaders’ panel about Healthcare & 3DP, at Cooley (Cooley Health Practice) LLP, Manhattan, 17 June 2014..

As you know from our prior notice this week, our next Meetup Event is now scheduled for Thursday, 12 March.

Now, we’re delighted to announce—as promised—that two new Sponsors have stepped up to support our HCx3DP Community. iMakr New York is our Venue Host and the Internet Society’s New York Chapter is our Collaborating Sponsor.

iMakr New York will generously house and host our 12 March Meetup. We will gather-in at the innovative retailer’s store on the Lower East Side of Manhattan (152 Allen Street). Because iMakr will be demonstrating its printers live for our Community attendees on 12 March, we’ll start our Event a half-hour earlier than usual—at 6:00 PM (with a soft end-time of 8:30 PM).

Those of you who joined-in our 3 February Meetup at ThoughtWorks enjoyed Sylvain Preumont’s (Founder & Director of iMakr of London and New York City) presentation on his 3DP-retail pioneering (and medical-prosthetics experiments). Sylvain’s innovative retail operations foreshadow how this rapidly developing 3DP segment of DIY/DIT end-users, makers, consumers and prosumers are likely to support, lead and invent much of 3D Printing’s future.

iMakr’s positioning statement is “The World’s Leading Retailer of Best-In-Class 3D Printers.” In May 2013, Founder Preumont opened what he characterizes as the world’s largest 3D printing store in Central London. In June of 2014, iMakr New York opened its Manhattan store on the Lower East Side.

As I’ve said before here, I also foresee a 3DP retail-driven support infrastructure for DIY/DIT Healthcare participants and players—particularly here in NYC.

This is likely to be engined by potential marketplace synergies around entirely new HCx3DP communities—like the now-worldwide eNABLE “society” (volunteer-printed child prosthetics), Maker Nurses at hospital complexes (3DP’d patient-centric innovations in the Supply Closet) and DIY Bio Lab experimenters (applying 3DP technologies to DIY/DIT lab equipment, DNA sequencing and bio-hacking).

The New York Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC-NY) is a nonprofit that works for open development of technology, Internet freedom and access for all. ISOC-NY is a Chapter of the global Internet Society (ISOC)—founded by Vint Cerf, “the father of the Internet.”

ISOC-NY has recently begun to address issues of new Net-connected technologies at the intersection of the virtual and real. This novel space includes medical implants, networked 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality—as well as Bitcoin and Blockchain 2.0.

David Solomonoff, President of the Internet Society’s NY Chapter and “HCx3DP Meetup NY” Collaborative Sponsor, will also present as one of our Experts on 12 March. David will address issues of privacy, security and civil liberties around the impact of the “Internet of Things” (IoT) on Healthcare. IoT is poised to revolutionize HC—with such innovations as 3DP-created and RF-enabled Medical Devices supporting Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) via wearables, mobile apps, mHealth and Big Data.

In addition, we have invited other Expert presenters—to be confirmed—from the worlds of:

>>> HCx3DP Intellectual Property & regulatory law,
>>> crowdfunding for HCx3DP startups and
>>> Big Pharma’s uses of 3DP in FDA-authorized testing.

We will update you as we continue to fill-in the evening’s diverse agenda.

Audience members will also have an opportunity to introduce themselves and their interests. Light refreshments will be served. And, the evening will conclude with a soft-ending at 8:30 PM.

So, please be sure to RSVP at our “HCx3DP Meetup NY” for our Thursday, 12 March Meetup at your earliest convenience. Plan to participate in this rich and enriching Event at the iMakr New York Store. Looking forward to seeing you there! (Details: 152 Allen Street, Lower East Side; 6 to 8:30 PM. HCx3DP’s Event/RSVP fee is $20 per person; by credit card at www.Meetup.com/HCx3DP-NY/ or at the iMakr door in cash).

Best!
