The Southeastern Medical Device Association (SEMDA) - a non-profit trade association focused on making the Southeast a world-class region for medical technology, device, and diagnostic companies has announced an initial group of featured speakers for the 2018 SEMDA Medtech Conference May 2-4, 2018.
