SXSW Interactive Panel Picker: Voting Begins Today
The voting period will last from August 19 through September 6. I have teamed up with a great group of individuals to propose: Minorities in Health Tech: A How-to Workshop. It is designed as an insider’s guide to the unique aspects of the health innovation sector. Ivor Horn, MD MPH, Kimberly Bryant, and Damon Davis, MBA will provide subject matter expertise from academic medical institutions, industry and government, respectively. I will facilitate the workshop and Andre Blackman, as a SXSW health track veteran has agreed to be our organizer. We’ve assembled a truly diverse team of presenters. This workshop will be a part of broader programming of events to advance the mission of increasing the participation of Blacks in Health Information Technology at every stage of application design and development.
Here’s a video to explain our overarching strategy further. I hope this gets you motivated!
Please follow this link and VOTE for this workshop. Feel free to share this link to our proposal with your networks, as well.
UPDATE: Our workshop just received the endorsement of Veronica Combs, MedCity News Editor-In-Chief
