“Is New South Wales ready to harness the transformative power of data in health and medical research?”

Our health system collects millions of pieces of information about us every day. While currently fragmented, this data has the potential to provide valuable insights into the Australian population and our healthcare if it is made more readily available for research.

Presented by Vodafone Foundation in support of the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, join us at our inaugural Speaker Series event where our panel of expert industry leaders will explore this topic. Our panel includes:

  • Dr Jean-Frédéric Levesque – Chief Executive Officer, NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation
  • Professor Emily Banks – Scientific Director, 45 and Up Study, Sax Institute
  • Dr Avi Ratnanesan – Founder and CEO, Energesse
  • Harry Iles-Mann – Patient/Consumer Advocate – Consumer Reference Lead, Australian Digital Health Agency

The event will be moderated by Sophie Scott, the ABC's National Medical Reporter. 

With introductions from:

  • Nadia Levin – CEO and Managing Director, Research Australia
  • Hon Catherine Cusack MLC – Parliamentary Secretary for Digital Inclusion
  • Dan Lloyd – Chief Strategy Officer and Corporate Affairs Director, Chairman, Vodafone Foundation
