At last year’s annual HIMSS conference, I had the pleasure of experiencing Bill Clinton’s keynote speech in New Orleans, which I wrote about here. As a long-time member of HIMSS, this was a great moment in my many years attending HIMSS conferences.
Another special moment in HIMSS conference history happened today, as, I had the honor of attending Hillary Clinton’s keynote speech at HIMSS 2014 in Orlando today. I am blessed with fast-typing fingers thanks to my mother’s genes, and took constant notes during Hillary’s talk. My favorite paragraphs are quoted below, indicating “Applause” pauses where Hillary was lauded.
Hillary received standing ovations as she walked onto the stage, and at the end of her hour with us. The Valencia Ballroom in the Orange County Convention Center was standing room only where 20,000+ people sat. Others spilled over into spaces outside of the Ballroom.
Enjoy these remarks, and know that Hillary never admits to planning to run for President of the United States. Not that Steven Lieber, the head of HIMSS, didn’t try to trap her once or twice!
