Event description
Join us Thursday, May 20th for a three part mini conference celebrating the women and ideas reshaping the conversation around womxn’s health

About this event

The age of digital health promises many upsides: phones that can connect us to our PCP for a quick video chat, apps to track literally every data point of our lives, and wearables that provide interventions for when those data points go askew.

Despite the obvious gains, there are some elements of our increasingly digital healthcare system that need to be better understood. From idea to design to rollout, we’re asking: who’s still being left out of the conversation? Where is all this confidential data going? How much technology is too much? For better or for worse, our relationship with our devices is, for many of us, one of the most personal, intimate relationships of our lives at this moment–so we better be sure it’s a healthy one.

Join Loft and an all-star panel of industry experts and innovators for an exploration of digital health’s intersection–or collision–with digital wellbeing.

This conversation is part of Loft’s Outsiders on the Insiders Mini Conference, a free, three-part event taking place on May 20th. The goal of these events is to provide access to important conversations and give a platform to unique perspectives and voices. Join us! You can register for the other sessions here.

This is a virtual event. Zoom invite information will be sent to registered attendees on the morning of the event.
