Description

This September we are bringing Ottawa's biggest and brightest leaders in the MedTech industry together for an invaluable networking experience! Join us for some light refreshments, discussions, and listen to our local visionary, Dr. Ashleigh Kennedy keynote on machine learning in the MedTech space!

We would love to see you there. Read more about our speakers below:



Concussion, a devastating but invisible injury, is a major problem worldwide, impacting 42 million people every year!

  • 80% of patients regress at some point in time due to overexertion

  • 15% have long term symptoms

Dr. Ashleigh Kennedy, CEO and founder of Neurovine, is on a mission to drastically improve the concussion recovery process with deep technology that combines the art of neuroscience with machine learning.

Join us for a fascinating presentation and discussion about how (or if) machine language can empower patient’s post-concussion injury.
