Each week, the DeviceTalks podcast will bring the energy and insights of our medtech events to you via iTunes, Spotify and other podcasts channels. Hosted by our DeviceTalks editorial director Tom Salemi, the DeviceTalks podcast will tell the stories of the entrepreneurs, executives and other leaders who have committed their careers to making medtech better.

The Host:
DeviceTalks editorial director Tom Salemi brings over two decades of medtech writing to each episode of DeviceTalks. Prior to joining WTWH Media, Tom organized conferences, wrote feature articles, broke news and hosted an influential podcast. Tom grew up outside of Boston, so he’s thrilled to be organizing this region’s most influential medtech meeting. Tom lives north of Boston with his wife, two sons, and Daisy the Dog.
