What we're about

We live in a world where health disparities are worsening despite advances in prevention, diagnosis and treatment. With the right support and partnerships, med tech and digital health entrepreneurs can be a driving force in promoting health equity. Conversely, innovation without an equity lens runs the risk of exacerbating disparities.

This is a group for creative problem solvers- hackers, entrepreneurs, designers, advocates, providers and community leaders.

Through panel discussions, hackathons and other educational/social events, we'll be tackling issues such as:

- communities as innovation hubs
- remote care
- designing for health justice
- fighting racism, sexism, ableism and homophobia in health care through tech
- unorthodox partnerships
- innovations in housing, employment, education, food/water access (social determinants) to improve health conditions
- using data for good
- inclusion in the health/innovation profession
- using media to shape narratives about health and justice
- getting a justice health tech startup funded
- the new digital divide
