You may want to arrive early in San Jose if you’re interested in expanding into pediatric devices or learning how to test a pediatric version of your adult medical device. This year, the 5th Annual Pediatric Device Innovation Symposium is co-locating with The MedTech Conference and will take place on September 24, 2017 - the day before The MedTech Conference begins.
