This two and a half hour long workshop will discuss needs and opportunities for people of color and others to use their experience, skills & resources to build sustainable health tech solutions targeting communities of color. Part 1 will explain the need for health tech that consciously includes underrepresented groups in the design and implementation process, as well as a discussion of why minority developers are uniquely suited to lead innovations for the urban community. Part 2 will give practical how-to guidance on getting started & partnering with health care institutions.
The workshop will focus on specific takeaway areas for each participant to learn from. Part 1 of the workshop will provide information on current technology, social media uses and consumption behavior by communities of color and provide use cases on how this information may be applied to health tech innovation development.
Part 1 of the workshop will also showcase overview data on health disparities currently affecting communities of color and present a business case for developing health tech innovations for this population.
Part 2 of the workshop will identify unique aspects of the health care innovation community (i.e. patients, communities, health care providers, health systems, insurers, pharmaceutical, biotech, academic institutions and government) and provide key resources for mentorship, collaboration and potential funding opportunities.
- A cursory understanding of how technology has been useful for improving our health (e.g. mobile health apps).
What to Bring:
- Business cards for networking and anything to take notes on (pen/notebook, tablet).
