Queensbury Convention Centre, Regina
In 2017 & 2018, the Health Innovation Summit initiated new approaches to creative problem solving, inspired honest conversations about difficult social issues, and applied innovative thinking and technology to improve the patient care experience. For 2019, the Health Innovation Summit will shift to a more focused, solution-driven conversation on the intersection of mental health and addictions.
Keynote speaker, NHL Champion, Theo Fleury, will share his personal story of a troubled childhood, abuse and coping with emotional pain through addictive, self-destructive behaviours, and how he overcame those obstacles to devote his life to helping others gain mental health and addictions support.
The 2019 Summit will host a variety of speakers who share their own experiences with mental health and addictions, as well as insights on how we can address a growing need around mental health and addictions services in Saskatchewan. Once again, the Health Innovation Summit will showcase the ground-breaking work underway to improve healthcare in the province, offer thought-provoking tips on kick-starting your own idea, and host a fast-paced brainstorming session during a condensed version of a Hackathon.
