Welcome to Lions Health

17 - 18 June 2017

Two days of life-changing creativity

What is Lions Health

Bringing together professionals from across healthcare and pharma communications, Lions Health seeks to challenge norms and motivate change in these highly innovative yet fiercely regulated industries. From chief creative officers to digital medicine leaders, a host of experts examine the intersection of health, creativity and technology, and inspire the industry with fresh, forward-thinking ideas.

What is Lions Health

The Festival

Life-changing creativity is explored across three stages and two days of thought-provoking sessions that examine key trends and issues in healthcare communications. Demos of world-changing tech and health-centric exhibitions allow people to get a feel for the industry’s future. Two specialist awards celebrate stand-out healthcare and pharma communications, and meeting, mingling and sharing ideas is made easy with a busy programme of networking events.


What’s on

Expect to hear healthcare professionals and creatives share their stories, get interactive with hands-on workshops and immerse yourself in the best examples of healthcare communications.

Whether it's entering work, attending the Festival, or even organising your own activations or events, there are more ways than ever to get involved with Lions Health.
