The 2019 Medical Alley Association's Annual Dinner is a sold-out, members-only event that brings together hundreds of MAA companies, including the Association's foundational and sustaining members, for a spectacular evening of connecting, conversing, and celebrating leaders that are raising the profile of this region with their work.

Fireside Chat with Best Buy

This fireside chat will cover the convergence of the healthcare and retail sectors and the technologies driving change in healthcare. Best Buy continues its transformation with an increased focus on health and Asheesh Saksena and Cindy Kent will outline the exciting strategies that are challenging the status quo – both in healthcare and in retail. From health market acquisitions to leveraging the consumer relationship to change healthcare delivery and expand available data, Best Buy’s path forward provides new signals about where healthcare is heading.

This event was a great testament to the incredibly strong medical community that we have in MN and in the great potential and opportunity we have to continue to shape the future of healthcare globally.



To call it an “annual meeting” somehow doesn’t seem to do it justice. I am grateful for the invitation and was struck by the number of old and new friends and colleagues that I was able to visit with and enjoy during the networking portion of the meeting. The energy and enthusiasm for what you are creating is palpable.
