Rural Health Innovation in the KFLA Region: Challenges and Opportunities

January 19 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join us on January 19th for an informative discussion on the opportunities and challenges of rural healthcare in the KFL&A region.

About the Event:

The purpose of this panel is to gather students and community members from the KFL&A region, including executives, innovators, and healthcare leaders, to explore their identified challenges and opportunities, priorities and provide education about how to rural health and where there is room to pilot innovations across the region.

About the Dunin-Dehpande Queen’s Innovation Centre (DDQIC):

We believe that everyone has the potential for creative problem-solving. Our mission is to catalyze this potential, develop entrepreneurial mindsets and foster a culture of innovation across Queen’s University, the Kingston community, and globally.

We build changemakers by encouraging and supporting their entrepreneurial initiatives through startup incubators, workshops, programs, courses, and pitch competitions.

About Health Innovation/Build2Scale:

This panel event is kicking off DDQIC’s rural programming as part of the health innovation stream. Health Innovation supports teams who want to develop and deliver new or improved health policies, systems, products and technologies, and services and delivery methods that improve people’s health. We work with teams who are looking to create distinctive value to unmet needs in the health sector

In an effort to better-capture the whole of the KFL&A region, we are expanding our programing, one branch of our programming aims to narrow in on the specific opportunities and challenges of health in the rural sector since it is a big part of the region and it has special needs and is harder to access.
