Dr. Pat Salber chats with Robin on her bird’s eye view of the current health and technology industry and where we are headed in the future
If you’ve ever been to CES, you know just how incredibly large the venues are. Navigating through each location can be difficult and exhausting. But despite travelling from Mandalay Bay to the North Hall of the Las Vegas Conference Center (LVCC), Robin Raskin, as busy as she was, found the time and energy to grace the Health Innovation Media Team with her presence in the LVCC Press Room located in the South Hall (about a 10-15 minute walk from the North Hall).
We met with and got to know more about Robin, the Founder and CEO of Living in Digital Times, in conference room A which we reserved for an hour and a half segment on Tuesday, January 7th.
