Maslon is proud to co-sponsor the keynote speaker—Dr. Atul Gawande—for the Minneapolis Foundation's Centennial Futurist Conference on September 18, 2015. Dr. Gawande is a surgeon, researcher, Harvard Medical School professor, staff writer for The New Yorker magazine since 1998, and has written four New York Times bestsellers: Complications, Better, The Checklist Manifesto, and most recently, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End. He is the winner of two National Magazine Awards, AcademyHealth's Impact Award for highest research impact on healthcare, a MacArthur Fellowship, and the Lewis Thomas Award for writing about science.
The Centennial Futurist Conference brings together some of the most thought-provoking speakers in the world known for their expertise, innovation, and provocative ideas on critical issues for our community—including Sir Kenneth Robinson, Dan Pallotta, Dr. Michio Kaku and Dr. Gawande. With MPR Host Kerri Miller leading the discussion, the event is the official kick-off for the next 100 years of innovative community building. The conference will be held on Friday, September 18, at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
