We are now seeking nominations for our Board and encourage you to nominate yourself or someone else to this role. This is an opportunity to contribute to the future direction of NZHIT, digital health and the health, disability and social sectors.
NZHIT is developing the NZ HealthTech Opportunities Report and Board members have an important part to play in its completion along with the ongoing work associated with progressing the 'calls to action' that will form an important part of the report.
NZHIT being a member led organisation, in making a nomination and voting we encourage all members to consider the diversity (size,geography, ethnicity, age, gender) of our members and the health tech sector. This is important to strengthen both our thinking and decision making.
