Sohn Conference Lineup for Tomorrow

For the last six years, I’ve been your eyes and ears at the Ira Sohn Foundation’s annual investment conference in New York City. It’s an incredible organization that does so much for pediatric cancer research. Their event is always the highlight of each year’s conference calendar.

This year’s lineup is excellent, as always. I plan to be on hand for the afternoon and evening sessions tomorrow. As per usual, I will be taking notes and sharing the stuff I’ve found interesting with you here.

Here’s who we will be hearing from tomorrow:
