What’s Next Canada, hosted by the Baycrest-led Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation and co-produced by Mary Furlong & Associates, has been the industry’s premier event for networking, collaboration, and learning opportunities for the past two years. In concert with Baycrest’s Annual Rotman Research Institute Conference, What’s Next Canada attracted opportunities for innovators to form transformative collaborations with renowned researchers, clinicians, healthcare providers, and corporate executives in the seniors’ care sector.
This year, CABHI will build on this momentum to launch its Annual Summit on March 24-25, 2021. Our 2021 Summit will feature new and exciting opportunities to network with and learn from industry experts in the aging and brain health space over a global virtual platform. Attendees will witness the largest pitch competition for agetech solutions in the sector, the launch of a global community for older adults, and world-class talks from engaging speakers.
