Making the most of networking at e-Health 2024 while prioritizing your mental health

Networking at conferences can be a highly rewarding experience, but it can also be overwhelming. At e-Health 2024, there are numerous opportunities to connect with peers, learn from experts, and expand your professional network. However, it’s equally important to look after your own mental health during the event.

Key Networking Events

Here are some networking events at e-Health 2024:

  • Sunday Seawall Walk: A scenic walk to kick off the conference.
  • Outdoor Yoga: Relax and stretch with beginner-level yoga sessions.
  • Welcome Reception: The official opening event to meet and greet.
  • Networking Breakfasts and Breaks: Scheduled throughout the conference for casual meet-ups.
  • Monday Night Social: Celebrate connections with an evening of fun and festivities.
  • Chill Space: A dedicated area for rest and quiet reflection.

Tips for Effective Networking

  1. Plan Your Schedule: Use the e-Health 2024 mobile app to organize your agenda and prioritize the events that align with your goals.
  2. Set Realistic Goals: Aim to connect with a specific number of people each day, but don’t overextend yourself.
  3. Take Breaks: Utilize the Chill Space to decompress and recharge between sessions.
  4. Be Mindful of Your Needs: Listen to your body and mind. If you feel overwhelmed, it’s okay to step back and take a breather.
  5. Follow Up: After the conference, reach out to new contacts to strengthen your connections.

Prioritizing Mental Health

  • Stay Hydrated and Eat Well: Keep your energy levels up by drinking water and eating balanced meals.
  • Get Enough Sleep: Ensure you are well-rested to make the most of the conference.
  • Practice Mindfulness: Engage in activities like yoga and the Seawall walk to stay grounded.
  • Seek Support: If you’re feeling anxious or stressed, talk to a friend or colleague – or come find me!

By balancing networking with self-care, you can make the most of e-Health 2024, ensuring a productive and enjoyable experience.

I look forward to seeing you there and making meaningful connections that will shape the future of digital health!
