Today we are launching Live Events on Figure 1. Live Events will explore real-time experiences—from cutting-edge procedures to medical conferences to advancements in global health. They will immerse us in the lives of healthcare professionals in other parts of the world. They will allow us to see how our challenges are different even while our aspirations are the same.
Our first-ever Live Event is taking place on October 7. During the twenty-four hour event, the Apollo Group’s flagship hospital in Chennai, India will share live medical cases. The cases will highlight medical conditions in India and show how Indian healthcare professionals treat them in real time. The Apollo Group is one of Asia’s largest healthcare systems, made up of 51 Indian hospitals that treat nearly seven million patients each year.
Check Figure 1 on October 7 at 9 am EST to see the first case, and come back throughout the day to join the discussion on all the cases. The Live Event will be at the top of your home feed.
We look forward to hosting more Live Events and showcasing the experiences of healthcare professionals everywhere—from healthcare hubs to remote outposts with limited resources—and maybe even as close as your own workplace. Together, we will use Live Events to further connect healthcare.
To connect with healthcare professionals around the world who are viewing, discussing, and sharing medical images, join Figure 1.
