Sponsorship Opportunities 

Elevate Your Brand and Reach New Audiences

The HFES International Symposium on Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care is a leading educational activity and forum for human factors experts, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, biomedical engineers, healthcare providers, FDA representatives, and patient safety researchers to discuss real-world examples and experiences and find solutions for challenges in healthcare.

 

In its 11th year, the 2022 symposium will feature cutting-edge lecture and panel presentations, poster presentations, and workshops on emerging issues in health care human factors. Academicians, students, and practitioners should join us to develop their knowledge of human factors/ergonomics as it applies to health-care devices, environments, and end-users in a format that allows for both education and social interaction.

 

Experience the Benefits of Sponsorship!   We invite you to take advantage of the unique characteristics of this educational activity to engage with HFES members and other attendees. We will help you increase awareness among researchers and practitioners alike, position your company as a thought leader, and connect with professionals engaged in the discipline, as well as with a community of students - the next generation in the field.
