Dear Alumni,
You are invited to an exciting learning event organized by the INSEAD Swiss Healthcare Industry Club (cHIC). The event host is Bristol-Myers Squibb and our partners are Canton Zug and the Technologie Forum Zug.

Digital Health: Future Promises vs Today’s Reality, April 4, 2016, Cham, Zug

Digital technologies have the potential to transform the healthcare sector, but in what ways and who will lead? Digital Health has already become a buzzword, but what is its real impact on the pharma and medtech sectors today? What are the lessons learnt from those already doing projects and implementations? If you are interested in Digital Health in any way, you will want to attend this evening discussion and expert panel. Tickets are free, but registration is required. We look forward to seeing you there.

New registrations only for waiting list due to strong demand.
