Pillars of Health

March 9, 2020

What is Pillars of Health?

Healthcare innovation cannot be done in silos. It requires the interplay of various actors with different expertise: researchers, entrepreneurs, 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 significant connections with likeminded individuals across traditional silos.
