HEAL Webinar: Techquity

Virtual via Zoom

The Office of Faculty Development and Diversity is hosting a faculty webinar with the Health Equity Action Leadership (HEAL) Network and the Stanford Center for Continuing Medical Education (CME) to highlight efforts that explore and improve technology and health equity. You will hear from health equity researchers about the intersection of technology, health equity, future directions, and their personal journeys into this research. The event will feature a few brief presentations and will be followed by a Q&A session.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine the intersection of technology and health equity and how research can begin to address these inequities.
  2. Increase awareness about research addressing technological health disparities and why some researchers have chosen to focus their career in this space.
  3. Highlight community engaged research addressing technological health disparities.
