What is HealthPack?

The medical device packaging industry’s trusted, authoritative annual education forum for updating technical knowledge, exploring the leading edge of industry trends and connecting with the who’s who of the industry. 

HealthPack provides critical information you can put to immediate use on your packaging team.
