- Also this year, after ten editions, it is back Health Direction North, on May 28 at the Stelline Foundation in Milan. TO True Event, in collaboration with Telelombardia and RadioLombardia, media partner of the initiative, will be broadcast in live streaming on the official page of the event, True-News.it.
Health Direction North, the thematic event of the Dn-A True Event, year after year confirms itself as the stage on which to deepen a paradigm shift in healthcare logic, in which institutions, clinicians, experts and civil society create a receptive fabric for develop and welcome new solutions, avoiding the risk of overlaps and contrasts. And if the public, with the rethinking of laws and the social and health system, is moving in this direction, what is the role of the private sector? What virtuous synergies can we imagine for the future? In an attempt to answer these questions, the new edition of Health Direction North – Turning Point will open.
Direction Nord, name of the exhibition in which Sdn is located, is the place where institutions, politics, businesses and stakeholders meet to talk not only about the role that Milan and the North must have in the development of the whole of Italy, but also of what lies north of Italy, that is Europe and the challenge of relations with the community of states of our continent.
“In addition to changing perception, this pandemic has pushed us to rethink the models and organizational systems for taking care of patients – explains the president of the Amici delle Stelline Association. Fabio Massa, founder of the event and author of the book Escape from the city (in which the issues of health and the change that the pandemic has brought in society are addressed) – aiming at an increasingly solid network between the hospital and the territory that can make a difference in terms of prevention, diagnosis and access to treatment . A model of health that not only looks at the body, but also at the mind, where mental health risks becoming the second world pandemic, with acute and long-term effects on the population ». It is therefore from a turning point that this new edition starts to tell a cultural change in the perception of health, from cost to social value. A turning point that will be analyzed starting with the Lombardy Region, which in recent months has undergone the transformation of most of the players in the health system.
During the initiative, moments of political reflection and technical meetings with companies and stakeholders will alternate. Without any kind of ideological alignment but with a very specific objective: to give space to “people who have something to say”, as it is in the claim of Direction Nord since its inception in 2017. Since then all the Milanese protagonists , Lombard, governmental and non-governmental, have found space to debate and confront each other.
