Health 2.0, with support by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is focused on increasing diversity in health technology via entrepreneurs and enabling inclusive health technology innovation


DIVERSITY IN HEALTH TECHNOLOGY Conference support Program

The Diversity in Health Technology Conference Support Program, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, encourages individuals interested in diversifying the health technology field and who are interested in, or currently engaged with, health technology, to attend Health 2.0’s 10th Annual Fall Conference in 2016. Individuals from populations that are underrepresented in the health technology field were encouraged to apply. The conference support included complimentary access to the annual conference. The workshop served as the formal kickoff to a year-long campaign focused on engaging more diverse voices in health technology
