Forum 360°: a great opportunity to promote our partnership with Hacking Health

The 2016 edition of Forum 360° was held in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary in late February and early March. These events helped link the Health Innovation Challenge, which was held at Complex Desjardins last November, to the hackathons that will be held across Canada in 2016.
