Child Health Technology - Virtual Conference


I am very excited to bring you the first Child Health Technology Conference, Child Health Technology 2021 (CHT2021).

CHT2021 will bring together healthcare professionals, industry experts, engineers, designers, academics, and patient representatives around one of the most exciting and fast moving fields in healthcare today.

Join us for inspirational keynote talks from leading experts, seminars on a wide range of topics, latest research findings in child health technology from academic teams around the globe, interactive Q&A sessions, and technology demonstrations. As the Director of NIHR Children and Young People MedTech Co-operative, Professor of Child Health, and Director of Research and Innovation at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, I have led on national technology networks that focus on the development and adoption of technology for paediatrics and child health through private and public sector collaboration.

It’s an exciting time to be part of our journey and I hope you can join us and help shape the future of child health technology.

Professor Paul Dimitri, CHT2021 Founder.
