Using Technology to Address Health Disparities

January 28th, 2015, 3:00 pm ET

Early studies of the use of technology in health interventions have demonstrated improvements in everyday life, allowing more of us to live longer, fulfilled lives. Yet, even with these advances health disparities continue, especially among ethnic minority groups. During this webinar, panelists will discuss ways that modern digital and information technologies can help address some of these disparities. Participants will hear a brief overview of how social media and technology is integrated into our lives and the various impacts on well-being, some current technologies that are being used in health interventions, and learn how common technologies such as text messaging and social media could be used to assist practitioners with mental health treatments. This webinar is intended for health and health care researchers, scholars, practitioners, funders, service providers and anyone else interested in using technology to address health disparities.

Webinar panelists  include:  Adrian  Aguilera, PhD, University of California at Berkeley,  Linda Charmaraman, PhD, Wellesley Centers for Women, and  Michelle Rogers, PhD, Drexel University.
