- BULMEDICA has a consistent focus on innovative technologies. As a platform, it’s the place where you get to experience combined devices for panoramic, encephalographic and 3D examinations, which are emerging technologies.
- BULMEDICA is also the right place where you can explore trends and approaches in the concept of optimal hygiene in the health sector.
- The support program also centres on rising challenges that arise because of the pandemic – how patients delay seeking treatment for different conditions, because of fears of getting infected or the stress on the healthcare system.
- Another major topic was the prevention of diabetes. The National Diabetes Association has offered a support programme with resources both offline and online, and has guided people to self-help groups "Lose Weight Boldly".
