On Thursday October 14th 7pm-8:30pm, the AFMW MedWiTH Group organised a webinar with hosts Dr Louise Schaper, CEO of Australasian Institute of Digital Health AIDH and Dr Amandeep Hansra of Creative Careers who is a leader in digital health in Australia.
It was an inspiring session during which we learned about how how medical women can get involved in the biggest industry – the Digital Health industry and about the upcoming Women in Digital Health mentoring program, Louise is launching in Australia next year.
In addition to Amandeep’s numerous activities, we heard how Amandeep co-founded the Australian Medical Angels, a group of over 400 doctors who invest in start-ups and a venture partner with Healthcare Ventures, the first digital health venture fund in Australia. It was a most exciting evening and the first of a series to come, so watch for the MedWiTH AFMW updates in 2022.
