MODSIM WORLD will be in Virginia Beach, VA October 9-15. There is an entire track devoted to Health and Medicine at this years conference. Of note, John Rice is serving as one of the Health and Medicine Deputy track chairs. John has an extensive and notable history in the simulation and modeling community. John also serves on several committees for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. A number of staff, board, and general Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) members will be attending this year’s MODSIM World. John’s service and leadership to both MODSIM WORLD and SSH should provide for general cross-walking and potential future collaboration among stakeholders in both organizations.
