"A summit of doers" kicks off today in Doha, Qatar.
The World Innovation Summit for Health, or WISH, pledges to bring together luminaries from around the globe to tackle critical issues, including patient engagement.
The list of speakers is impressive. WISH's Executive Director, Lord Darzi of Denham, a UK health minister and professor at Imperial College London, said of the forum:
It's a summit of doers — of people who make change happen.
It's important to see patient engagement get this level of stage time, especially on a stage this big. We'll be watching to see what this summit of doers comes up with.
