Resources to help you navigate the COVID-19 pandemic
Updated June 18, 2020
During a crisis like this, the healthcare innovation community is more important than ever.
That’s why we’re working on adapting MATTER’s existing programming to keep important conversations going as well as developing some new programming to help the healthcare innovation community navigate this uncertain time. Over the next several weeks, we’ll keep this page updated with resources to help you stay connected — from virtual conversations available from MATTER and the greater community to small business aid information and opportunities to help.
