This event is led by our partners DHEZ and One HealthTech and is sponsored by Translate.

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. The event will also discuss developments in these areas and learn from their speakers’ experiences (positive and negative).

Most importantly, the event will consider how to support one another when it comes to ensuring the inclusion of people of all backgrounds in Medical Technologies, as well as onto conferences and panel discussions.
