February 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join One HealthTech for a morning showcasing the work of women in MedTech from across academia, the NHS and the business community in the Bradford region.
There continues to be a need for greater inclusion of women in medical technologies conferences and panel discussions, hence the necessity to talk about challenges and opportunities for women in MedTech. The focus will be on technology applications/developments in diagnostics e.g. medical imaging, pathology, wearables. We will also discuss developments in these areas and learn from our speakers’ experiences (positive and negative).
Most importantly, we’ll consider how we can support one another when it comes to ensuring the inclusion of people of all backgrounds in Medical Technologies, as well as the onto conferences and panel discussions.
