"No doubt, San Francisco is the place to be in early January if you're in the healthcare and life science industries," added Brett Johnson (, President of OneMedPlace, organizer of the OneMedForum event. "An overwhelming majority of the country's healthcare and life science executives and investors attend the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference -- which will be held, literally, across the street from our event. But OneMedForum is quite unique because we concentrate on emerging private companies and small cap public companies that typically aren't able to participate in annual JP Morgan event.

"If you are the CEO of an emerging healthcare/life science company, or an investor who is looking to uncover 'the next big thing' in healthcare or the life sciences, then OneMedForum is the place for you on January 12th through the 14th, 2010," said Johnson. "Throughout the three-day OneMedForum event, promising private companies and public companies with market caps below $500 million and limited research coverage will be making formal presentations. For weeks now we've been reaching out aggressively to our investor network to identify the most promising healthcare and life science companies to invite to participate. We've confirmed many of the companies initially chosen by our advisory board, and we're more than three months ahead of the conference, so OneMedForum is shaping up to be a very successful event."
