HIP613 Café: Health Innovation Panel
Following our very successful Health Innovation Program (#HIP613) launch in partnership with CHEO-OCTC, join us for a panel on tech innovation as well as audience Q & A, informal discussions and networking opportunities.
You can expect to hear thoughtful perspectives from leaders in the space of design, medicine and technology that will help us re-imagine problems and solutions. The goal is to connect with healthcare and non-healthcare professionals that have a different skill set and are equally passionate about solving problems so that you can start forming your power team for the hackathon.
The panelists are:
Dr. Mark Dermer (Family Physician and Healthcare Consultant at Mark Dermer and Associates Ltd.)
Jeannine Lafrenière (Founder & President at Forget For a Moment Foundation)
Monica Zaczynski (User Experience Design & Research Consultant at Telus Health)
Felipe Izquierdo (Founder at Welbi.co)
The panel will be moderated by Adam Freed.
Refreshments and snacks will be served.
