Who Is Lucien Engelen

I am very excited to say that tomorrow will be our 2nd CrowdChat. And we will be speaking with Lucien Engelen — Director of Radboud REshape & Innovation Center. Engelen is passionate about healthcare. And what I find most impressive is that Lucien is founder & curator of TEDxMaastricht “the Future of Health.” Why do I find that impressive — because I love what TEDx stands for.

Crowdsourcing WeekI have never really given much thought to the evolution of the healthcare industry. But in listening to Lucien — I am now very curious. It will be interesting to see how healthcare will leverage crowdsourcing and social media to solve some of its biggest challenges.
