Pillars of Health: Learning from Healthcare Innovation Failures

March 25, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


What is Pillars of Health?

Healthcare innovation cannot be done in silos. It requires the interplay of various actors with different expertise: researchers, entrepreuners, clinicians, healthcare administrators, government officials, and industry executives. These are the people that make up the pillars of health and represent the sectors that have played integral roles in the development and maintenance of human health. In order to truly drive meaningful healthcare innovation, its stakeholders must work together.

Pillars of Health is an interdisciplinary networking event with the mission to provide a platform for members of the health community to interact, discuss ideas, and share information in a free and open space. Hosted in partnership with the Health Innovation Hub (H2i) and the University of Toronto’s Translational Research Program, it is a unique opportunity to establish signifcant connections with likeminded individuals across traditional silos. Learn more about our event here!

If you are a current or aspiring member of the health community with a passion for advancing Canadian innovation in health and life sciences, please join us on March 25, 2019 from 4PM-7PM for our fifth #pillarsofhealthTO.
