For the sixth consecutive year, Mayor Jim Lane is hosting Scottsdale’s Cure Corridor event with over 250 attendees and nearly every major healthcare employer in the state in attendance, city officials announced.

The Cure Corridor event has become the premier event of the year focusing on the latest in Scottsdale healthcare and research news, as well as the most recent trends in the healthcare sector, according to a press release.

The annual event is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7, at Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch, 7700 E. McCormick Pkwy.

“The Cure Corridor is not a location on a map as much as it is a destination for healthcare and bioscience businesses, and a collaboration of its people and innovations,” Mr. Lane said in a prepared statement. “Cutting edge research, innovations from existing and new companies, and dedication to enhanced patient care has created a network of care and cure within the city of Scottsdale.”

This year’s keynote speaker, Stephanie Domas, vice president of research and development for MedSec, is already widely recognized as one of the leading experts in healthcare cybersecurity in the world, having contributed toward national security guidance and standards for medical devices.

Ms. Domas is a member of several medical device cybersecurity standard working groups, contributing to security guidance and standards for medical devices, a registered professional engineer, and a certified ethical hacker, the press release stated. Ms. Domas has given a TEDx talk on medical product security and frequently publishes articles on medical cybersecurity topics.

Along with the keynote, attendees will also hear from two rapid fire speakers from Scottsdale research and development companies who will give short presentations on exciting news coming out of Scottsdale that will positively impact patients all over the world.
