The outline of our program is below. In addition to inspired keynote speakers, we will have panelists consisting of clinicians, patients, caregivers, health policy makers, health administrators, and technology leaders providing us with their vantage points. 


Q&A sessions in each panel will engage our audience members in a rich dialogue and open exchanges of experiences and perspectives which will in turn inform and guide next steps in digital health in BC and beyond.


Our clinicians, patients, and caregivers audience members are encouraged to actively participate in the live Q&A and submit comments in chats and poll questions using Slido.
