Healthcare is on the cusp of an exciting new future, but health systems must move quickly to meet these challenges and exploit the opportunities ahead. The series highlights the key areas where science and technology could transform disease prevention and care, examine barriers to implementation, and explore the policy implications of biomedical and digital innovations for health.
Meetings are open to all and combine expert insight with lively discussion and networking opportunities.
