The first edition of the Interdisciplinary Summer School on Digital Health (EINS, for the French acronym École d’été interdisciplinaire en numérique de la santé) organized by the GRIIS as part of the chaire en MEI en numérique de la santé will be held from the 10th to the 14th of July 2023, at the University of Sherbrooke.
