In advance of this morning’s Preparing for 2021 webinar on expected digital health regulatory changes (starts at 10.00 – you can still book), here are a few quick items I have been sent by members to notify you of, beginning with one that sadly my PC decided I shouldn’t see, so apologies for the late notification:

AGE-WELL and Supporting Innovation in AgeTech – Thursday 12th November 4pm

If you are a ‘healthy ageing’ innovator in the UK, interested in entering the Canadian marketplace, this interactive webinar is for you. Brought to you by The AHSN Network, in partnership with the Canadian AGE-WELL network, this interactive webinar will be the first in a series of joint events hosted by Canada and England, focussing on innovation in healthy ageing.

This first AGE-WELL introductory webinar will showcase the Canadian AGE-WELL network, its approach to improving life for older adults, how it fosters effective partnerships with members of industry and the support it can provide for innovators bringing solutions to the Canadian marketplace.  This will be an interactive webinar with a goal to foster future dialogue between AGE-WELL, the AHSN Network, UK-based innovators and stakeholders in the healthcare space.
