Let’s Talk Medtech assembles a panel of industry veterans to discuss ex-Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes's verdict and the mystique behind one of the sector's most controversial figures.

In January, Elizabeth Holmes, the founder and former CEO of the now defunct Theranos, was found guilty on three counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

By all accounts this should have been the final chapter in the Holmes saga. But the industry is still buzzing about the woman who once wore black turtlenecks and had a board that included the likes of Sam Nunn, a former U.S. senator and Henry Kissinger, former U.S. secretary of state.

Let’s Talk Medtech, the premier podcast for the medical device and diagnostic industry, put together a panel to discuss the Holmes verdict; the mystique surrounding the ex- CEO; and practical tips that can be used to avoid a “Theranos-Like Situation.”

The panel features:
