Speaker: Manny Villafaña, Ph.D. Sc.

Manny Villafaña was born in 1940 in New York City to Puerto Rican immigrants and attended Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx.  He began his career in 1964 at medical-device exporter Picker International. In 1967, he was hired away from Picker by Medtronic to become their first international sales administrator.  During his presentation, Villafana will draw from his experiences starting and leading businesses in the medical field, including Cardiac Pacemakers Inc (1971), St. Jude Medical (1976), GV Medical (1982), ATS Medical (1987), CABG Medical (2000), and most recently, Kips Bay Medical (2007), a medical device company that focuses on vein support technology for use in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery.  He has earned many awards over his career, including induction into the Minnesota Science and Technology Hall of Fame in 2010. 
All Happy Dollar donations collected at the meeting will be contributed to the Kips Bay Girls and Boys Club in New York City, which guided Villafana’s development as a youth
Note:  This presentation will take the place of our regularly scheduled meeting on September 20, so all members are encouraged to attend.
