Each month we will meet with thought leaders across technology, medicine, and policy to discuss how emerging health technologies can increase efficiency, extend reach, and advance health equity worldwide. Sessions are approximately 60 minutes and will typically follow the format of a brief guest presentation followed by a longer interactive “fireside chat” and open Q&A. You can learn more about the webinar series on the UNITAR website here.

VSee CEO and co-creator of this telehealth webinar course, Dr. Milton Chen says,

We are proud to work with UNITAR and our other partners to raise awareness of how tech innovation can break down barriers and create universal healthcare access. Our hope is that this course will inspire thousands of talented people around the world to create unique digital health tools for their own countries.”

The first episode, “Exploring the Global Landscape of Digital Health,” will take place on October 19, 2023 at 4PM CET/ 10 AM ET. It will provide an overview of the course and a discussion with founding members of Health Tech Without Borders (HTWB) non-profit on delivering digital health tools to overburdened hospitals and enabling them to efficiently utilize available knowledge and technologies to aid healthcare infrastructure and workforce shortages.

HTWB Co-Founder, Marianna Petrea-Imenokhoeva says,

“HTWB focuses on delivering digital health solutions to healthcare systems facing resource constraints, including those affected by humanitarian crises. Our initiatives provide essential support in affected regions and create opportunities for humanitarian engagement.”
