  Health Summit g2m
OGC and partners are proud to bring the Geo/Location and Health communities together for the Global Health Summit 2023 in Frascati, Italy. The Health DWG invites geospatial and health industry experts to share their work and their collective vision of the future at its quarterly meetings at locations around the world as well as hosts full-day Summits. The Global Health Summit is the next in our series of events to provide a forum for geo/location experts to learn what clinicians need to advance the practice of healthcare, and for clinicians to explore the possibilities unleashed when location/geo data is incorporated as part of solutions. Also, we are proud to announce Gideon Informatics as our Summit Sponsor.
