  • Refugee Health: Opportunities for Innovation and Technology
    In 2017, 68.5 million individuals around the world were forced to flee their homes as a result of conflict, persecution, generalized violence, or human rights violations. Of those 65.3 million, 25.4 million people were refugees. When arriving in a new country, refugees face numerous health issues including getting access to affordable and high-quality health care, acute illnesses, infectious diseases and mental health issues. Moreover, refugees might not only have to tackle with their own health issues but also bear the burden of the health and expenses of families and relatives who are left behind. Join us in this panel discussion to explore varied perspectives on refugee health issues and discuss opportunities for technology and innovation to solve these problems.

  • Precision Medicine vs. Population Health: Working Towards a Common Goal
    Precision Medicine and Population Health lie on opposite ends of the spectrum - one focuses on targeted care at the individual level, building on the idea that one treatment approach does not fit all and that each and every one of us has a unique experience, background, and inherent genetic programming that influences our health and well being. On the other hand, we have population health, which focuses on large scale improvement of health, on a community, regional, national, or even global level, and often hinges on non-clinical factors, such as food consumption, lifestyle, access, support, and many more. In the start-up scene today, it is possible to categorize companies into silos - precision medicine versus population health. At first glance, it seems like these two fields are working in opposite directions - bringing the following question to the forefront. As a health start up ecosystem, are both these categories of companies working towards a common goal? It what ways can precision medicine actually improve population health?
