The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken people and institutions worldwide – healthcare is no exception. New challenges associated with healthcare delivery are being discovered and old ones are now even more visible. As we look forward to a post-pandemic world, a new kind of healthcare provider emerges. Armed with the understanding that patient care goes beyond the clinic, the new guard finds ways to advocate in the governments, businesses, and streets of the world.

The conference will feature keynote speaker Christine Ngaruiya, MD, MSc, DMTH,  Researcher, Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM), Yale School of Medicine as well as panel discussions, workshops and major disaster simulation training.
