Last week saw the first of this year’s Meridian LIVE events and we have been overwhelmed by the energised atmosphere and positive feedback received. With our highest percentage of NHS attendees to date, delegates had the opportunity to get actively involved in interactive sessions involving Mr Potato Head, blue sky thinking and Quality Improvement Techniques. Industry, academia and health and social care organisations came together to hear about some of the fantastic innovative opportunities going on within the region and now have the key contacts and information to go back and drive the scale and adoption of best practice within their own areas.
If you were unable to attend don’t worry, it’s not too late to get involved! If you are interested in exploring this in your area then please do not hesitate to contact our Innovation Exchange Lead, Tammy Holmes (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will be happy to help.
Meridian Awards 2019
Our next event will be our annual Meridian Awards taking place in July 2019. This is an opportunity for us to recognise and celebrate the fantastic activities going on within the West Midlands. The awards will be presented at a glitzy ceremony at the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network's (WMAHSN) annual awards evening on 18th July, and reflect the WMAHSN's dual aim of improving health and creating wealth.
