Disruptors & Dilemmas: Robotics in Healthcare

November 26, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Join us on November 26, 2019 to the launch of U of T Engineering’s newest premiere speaker series, Disruptors & Dilemmas, kicking off with our inaugural event featuring healthcare and robotics.

Disruptors & Dilemmas: Robotics in Healthcare pulls together three panelists to focus the conversation on the innovations, challenges, and overall potential which comes with the continued adoption of robotics technology into healthcare. Our panel members will provide insights on how robotics can effect medical research, healthcare practitioners, and patients in Canada, revolutionizing existing practices and addressing the challenges of tomorrow.

Following our speaker panel, all guests are invited to engage with the panel members, fellow alumni and friends over cocktails and canapes.
