Mediaspora: Connecting Medicine, Media, and Diaspora

When people seek out medical advice, where do they turn? For many of us, the first step is to go online, diagnosing symptoms through websites, such as Google or Wikipedia. This information can be unreliable in the best circumstance but among underserved populations, language barriers may narrow access to reliable information even further. 

Technology such as AI, machine learning, and lightning-fast 5G internet services create enormous potential to expand access to digital health information and services. How can health experts, policymakers, and communicators ensure that medical information is accessible, reliable, and trusted among the most vulnerable members of society?

Join us for an event focused on how diasporic and underserved populations obtain medical and health information and what it means for the future of digital health.
