In-person event in Geneva: Irish perspectives on global health

April 27, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 9:30 pm

We are delighted to announce an exceptional line-up of speakers at the next in-person event of our Geneva Chapter on Thursday 27 April 2023 at 18.30 CEST.

If you are interested in hearing perspectives from leading Irish professionals working in the private, public and global health sectors in Switzerland and connecting with other Irish professionals living and/or working in Switzerland then this event is for you!

It is fitting that this event is being held in Geneva, considered by many as the international public health capital of the world. Participants will gain insights into some of the many facets of the health sector, and hear views on what some of the areas of focus might be at the national and international level in the coming years.

The evening will start with introductions from each of our speakers, after which participants will be welcome to join in an open and lively discussion moderated by Joanne Goetz, IBN Geneva Chapter Lead, followed by a networking reception.

Our distinguished panel will comprise:

John M Duff, Neurosurgeon, Swiss Medical Network 

Aidan O’Leary, Director of Polio Eradication, World Health Organization

Lorraine Niesink, International Marketing Director for Pelvic Health & Gastric Therapies, Medtronic

Winnie Prendergast, Vice President EMEA Hospital Group, Haemonetics
