May 17 @ 1:35 pm - 2:20 pm
The coronavirus pandemic was a wake-up call for those inclined to ignore emerging health threats.

- What can be done to support health systems in handling the rise of chronic conditions such as obesity and dementia?
- What advances are we seeing in treatment of increasingly prevalent conditions such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes and cancer?
- As recognition and understanding of mental health evolves, how could treatments change?
