A day in the life of: Innovation Consultant at Innovia Technology


CREATE-BEST and the MDII are pleased to invite you to the upcoming session of a series of seminars/webinars on the workday of a healthcare / public health professional. During each of these sessions, we invite a guest from the healthcare / public health sector and conduct a live interview with them. We will ask about their position in the organization, their daily activities, and their job requirements. The session will also allow for an open discussion with our guest for you to ask any questions about their workday!
