OEN PubTalk: Innovations in Healthcare

Online registration is now closed, but we do take walk-ins. Hope to see you soon!

Sick of the healthcare status quo? Join us on Wednesday, October 11 to learn about what’s going on in the bioscience and healthcare industries right here in Portland. Enjoy some pizza, buy a beer, and meet entrepreneurs who are at the front lines of healthcare innovation—from inventing life-saving medical products to eliminating physician burnout.

The OEN PubTalk™ is our flagship monthly happy hour — a perfect starting point for new community members and a great place for established members to make new connections.


As always, the program will be preceded by time for networking and will include free appetizers and pizza. Registration begins at 5:15 p.m. and the panel discussion will kick off around 6 p.m. Our PubTalks usually kick off with a short pitch from an OEN member, followed by audience Q&A.
