Health Tuesday is a series of networking events addressing health and wellbeing themes. The event is organized by Business Finland on the first Tuesday of each month and it offers participants an excellent opportunity to discuss with health professionals, health tech companies, decision-makers, investors, and representatives of the public sector.

Health Tuesday Oulu is a satellite event with a local point of view for each event’s theme. The Health Tuesday Oulu local program takes place as a separate Teams meeting after Business Finland’s Health Tuesday webinar and it requires a separate registration.
