About the webinar:

One of the largest challenges we have in healthcare is getting everyone the access to the care they need and trying to get out ahead of acute events. Even in 2023, we know that people of lower socioeconomic status, older Americans, rural populations, and populations of color have trouble accessing the care they need. Lack of access,combined with our shortage of healthcare resources, is creating gaps in our care system. Health tech - particularly digital - has an opportunity to really impact this challenge.

Hear from Julia Hu, CEO & Co-Founder at Lark, Dr. Lynne Nowak, Chief Medical Officer at Lark and Krishanu Evans, VP Strategy and Transformation at Walgreens Boots Alliance as they discuss the following:

  • The structural change industry leaders and innovators need to champion to reach underserved populations, including policy changes that would support greater health equity.
  • The critical role that AI and digital health tools play when providing care to people in Healthcare Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs).
