Humans of HealthTech

Get 10% off our Humans of HealthTech conference on the 4th June in London with the code "OHTevent10" as a way of us saying thanks for engaging in our local OHT Hub!



We have a little fund to make our events more accessible (woop woop!)

If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to £30 (but ask for more if you need, worth a try) per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if travelling around is tricky, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live-captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too. Find out more 

If you can't get a babysitter and need to bring your kids along, that's fine too! You just need to take responsibility for them at all times and, if possible, let us know in advance.

And finally, if there is anything else that we can do to make this event accessible for you, please let us know!
