[email protected] is an ongoing discussant series that provides a forum for Singapore's most distinguished thinkers and personalities to engage in a dialogue with members of our community. We hope to grow our community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, and ultimately, to improve the world we share.
We hope this quarterly lecture series will advance our core mission by contributing to the conversations on healthcare and society; building bridges between key thought leaders; and communicating the message to a wider audience.
