Making Healthcare great again

Online 10:00 BlueHealth Innovation Center

The current pandemic has exposed many pain points and cracks in our healthcare system, and it became painfully obvious that the complexity of our current system meant that we were unable to respond quickly and adequately enough. How can we avoid this in the future? What are the steps we need to take to tranform our healthcare system in a sustainable way? How can we "make healthcare great again"?

Who can participate? Anyone who is interested to contribute to the future of our healthcare system. Whether you're a student, a researcher, a (care) professional, and whether you have a background in healthcare or not, you're very welcome to participate. You can mention your team members in the registration form, but you can also register alone.
