Book release event "In Sickness and in Health"


24 Mar 2009

Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Campus Etterbeek, Building D, Promotiezaal

It is exceptional when scientific experts from competing pharmaceutical companies, academic departments and health institutions come together, not only to share their latest research findings, but also to discuss their personal vision on the many complexities in health care. And that is exactly what CROSSTALKS wants to do.

"In Sickness and in Health" presents the particular needs, challenges and aspirations, common aims and perspectives that emerged or were confirmed during the many CROSSTALKS interactions and workshops during the last 3 years.
