Agency executives were also well-represented, including Doug Burcin, worldwide managing director at Euro RSCG Life Worldwide; Richard Nordstrom, CEO of McCann Healthcare Worldwide; and Sam Welch, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Healthcare Communications Group.

Experts from the media space included Jack Barrette, CEO of Wego Health; Marjorie Martin, SVP, general manager at Everyday Health; Bob Ziltz, publisher of Prevention magazine; and Keith Yokum, director of online advertising for the New England Journal of Medicine.
