iOWNA’s Inaugural Translational Health Science Series: A Successful Event

Last week, iOWNA hosted the first event in its highly anticipated Translational Health Science Series at The Hellenic Centre, marking a significant milestone in our commitment to advancing health science and fostering a community of thought leaders. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all attendees who made this event a resounding success.

Our inaugural Thought Leadership event provided a much-needed respite from the daily grind. It was a refreshing opportunity to engage different parts of our minds and connect with both familiar faces and new acquaintances. The event underscored the interconnectedness of our community, demonstrating that the world indeed feels like a small village when like-minded individuals come together.

For those unfamiliar, translational health is the process of transforming observations from the laboratory, clinic, and community into interventions that enhance the health of individuals and the public. Translational health science builds an evidence base to support these transformations. At iOWNA, our focus is on generating robust evidence for digital therapeutics through rigorous research. Our upcoming TiGER study, a randomised controlled trial, aims to revolutionise outpatient care for patients with chronic heart and lung diseases. Inspired by the resilience and determination highlighted by Harriet Beveridge during the event, we are ready to tackle this challenge head-on.

The event featured insightful discussions and inspiring talks that left a lasting impression on all participants. Harriet Beveridge’s presentation was particularly motivating, encouraging us to persevere through challenges and seek out hidden opportunities in adversity. Some of the key takeaways included:

  • What could be good about this?
  • How can I use this?
  • What is the gift I haven’t noticed?

These reflections serve as guiding principles for our ongoing work and personal growth.

We are already in the planning stages for the next event in the Translational Health Science Series. Building on the valuable lessons learned from Harriet, we aim to deliver even more impactful sessions.

The inaugural event was a testament to the power of community and collaboration in advancing health science. We are deeply grateful to everyone who participated and contributed to the success of this event. Together, we are making strides towards a healthier future.
