Steering Committee (June 2016 – February 2018)

From its inception, Health City was co-developed by over 70 people from across the health ecosystem. They represented academia, government, Alberta Health Services, MNEs, SMEs, industry, philanthropic organizations, industry associations, community leaders, investors and incubators/accelerators.
