Change.Enabled: Global Health and the Innovation Assembly

June 24

NYU Skirball Center, 566 LaGuardia Pl, New York, NY 10012

Hosted by the Institute for Technology & Global Health (ITGH)

Recent population-level health threats have highlighted the urgency in revisiting existing processes in public health, the policies guiding their operations, and the need for innovations capable of responding to modern crises.

Change.Enabled will assemble leading experts and change agents from the public and private sectors, including health practitioners, policymakers, technologists, and researchers, to dissect the obstacles to successful population-level health responses and the implementation of innovative technologies.

We want to learn how we can utilize lessons from the events of the past two years, to inform the transformation of public health systems internationally and how we can make them into modern and resilient ecosystems, capable of combating health threats and the crises of the future?
