The purpose of this event is to promote partnerships between patients and the medical profession to pave the way for a better, more inclusive healthcare system as we rebuild after the pandemic. By strengthening this relationship, we aim to ensure patients never feel isolated when they are at their most vulnerable. We will discuss real-life examples of partnerships and their successes. 

There will be a series of presentations and workshops by students and experienced professionals on non-technical aspects of medical practice, such as political challenges with the public health service and humanitarian values.
