10 Virtual Healthcare Conferences & Webinars to Attend Summer 2020
One of the most popular ways for professionals to continue learning and expanding their business relationships is through conferences. However, with COVID-19 inhibiting the flexibility of travel and limiting the number of people gathered in a room, conferences traditionally held in person have either been rescheduled or pushed to a virtual platform.
While this new format can be a bit of an adjustment, it may not be such a bad thing. The virtual switch allows for a broader and more global audience and provides a much more economical option than your traditional conference. Previously, budget and schedule limitations could have only allowed for you to attend only 1-2 conferences per year, however now you may be able to attend all of them from the comfort of your own home!
Because business and networking doesn’t stop despite a global pandemic, we have pulled together 10 virtual healthcare conferences and webinars being held this summer so you can continue making connections and expanding your healthcare knowledge.
