Health and the City

Save event

The city of Plymouth has unique characteristics that have been influenced by its history, location, demographics and environment. 

Collectively these factors have shaped the profile of its population and created particular challenges for the organisations responsible for the health and well-being of the city. 

This event brings together the representatives from the organisations tasked with this responsibility and expert speakers who are developing the technology and processes that will deliver potential solutions.

This event is aimed at professionals associated with the health, medical, life sciences or wellbeing sectors who would like to learn more about the challenges faced by our health providers and the people of Plymouth.
