2014 Keynote Speaker

It is with great honor and pleasure that we announce and welcome world renowned theoretical physicist, bestselling author, popularizer of science, and futurist, Dr. Michio Kaku as our keynote speaker for NLC 2014: The Future Starts Now in Orlando, Florida!
From an early age, Dr. Kaku had a love of science. While he was in high school he assembled a particle accelerator in his parents’ garage for a science fair project with the goal of generating a beam of gamma rays powerful enough to create antimatter. He went on to graduate at the top of his physics class at Harvard University in 1968 and finished his Ph.D. in 1972 at the University of California, Berkeley.
Michio Kaku is the Henry Semat Professor of theoretical Physics at the City College of New York. During his academic career, he has published over 70 papers in various topics such as superstring theory supergravity, supersymmetry, hadronic physics, and is the co-founder of string field theory. He’s also taught physics at prestigious institutions such as Harvard, New York University, and Princeton.
Spreading his love of science to others, Michio Kaku is a popularizer of science, showing the world why science is so cool. He has been the host of the weekly radio programs “Explorations” and “Science Fantastic”, which is one of the largest syndicated science broadcasts in the world airing in over 130 stations. He has made multiple appearances on both television and film. Some of his television appearances include PBS’s NOVA, the BBC’s Horizon, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, Discovery Channel’s How the Universe Works, and the Emmy nominated documentary “Me & Isaac Newton”.  He is the author of three New York Times Best Sellers: “Physics of the Impossible”, “Physics of the Future”, and “Future of the Mind”.
Dr. Michio Kaku is a perfect example of why “The Future Starts Now!” and we can’t wait to hear more of his insights on the future of healthcare!  HOSA-Future Health Professionals welcomes Dr. Michio Kaku as the keynote speaker at the 37th National Leadership Conference on Wednesday, June 25 at 7:30 PM at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida.
