SDHES 2022: SaludConTech Digital Health Equity Symposium
January 21, 2022 at 10am-5 pm PST
As we consider the scale of change that the covid-19 pandemic has generated and will continue to generate in the years to come, we feel compelled to reflect not just on a health crisis of immense proportion but also on an impending restructuring of our daily lives. The SaludConTech Digital Health Equity Symposium will bring together a group of diverse health technology and health equity leaders to connect, strengthen and amplify our collective efforts.
The symposium will feature presentations and conversations led by experts working at the intersection of health equity and digital health to explore the role of technology in addressing health disparities.
We aim to elevate the voice of community-based organizations and members of marginalized communities to develop a better-shared definition of health equity. To improve our understanding of successes, challenges, lessons learned, needs, and growth opportunities, we will be supporting emerging minority leaders in university and community settings and providing opportunities for continuing dialogue, professional growth, and networking with those who work with marginalized communities.
Attendees will learn how technology can help design our new normal by fostering connections among organizations and strengthening relationships with surrounding communities.
In 2018, hundreds of you joined us at Google HQ In Venice for The SaludConTech Digital Health Equity Symposium. Beyond the many inspirational talks, we were amazed by the connections made and friendships built. Each time we bring our family together, whether in-person or online, we are amazed by the passion, expertise, and creativity of those among us.
We look forward to building this movement together, and we hope you will join us at our upcoming symposium.
THE SALUDCONTECH DIGITAL HEALTH EQUITY SYMPOSIUM
The SaludConTech DHES is an event built for the community by the community.

We want to hear about the digital health-related challenges you are facing, what has and hasn't worked for you, and thoughts from the community on topics of interest for the community.
We welcome submissions from all members of the health care team, including patients and community members. We are looking for both evidence and experience-based projects that impact the quality, safety, and experience of health care in the future.
After participating in The SaludConTech Digital Health Equity Symposium, the learner should be better able to:
• Apply evidence or experience-based models of technology-assisted solutions to improve health care in Latinx communities.
• Leverage technology to better engage in team-based care
• Connect emerging trends in health equity and health care policy with regulatory efforts that impact care delivery.
• Understand the conceptual model for the health equity research agenda, understand social determinants of health, and learn how communities can build interventions to reduce these disparities.
• Identify how technology can help develop mental, public, and population health strategies for common health issues facing the Latinx community.
• Develop core competencies and leadership skills unique to professionals involved in building health equity in minority communities.
• Assess and improve the application of health IT infrastructure best practices
• Learn strategies to overcome the digital divide and improve usability, ease of use, and user acceptance of technology-involved solutions.
• Identify diversity, race, and inclusion issues through the lens of digital health equity.
Impact sessions are broad interest sessions, with multiple presenters/perspectives, focused on emerging and important topics and issues with impact for everyone. These key sessions typically kick off the symposium and provide a venue for addressing opportunities, challenges, updates, and forward-looking insight into topics of broad interest that require an in-depth presentation. A limited number of session slots are available for this format. Impact sessions will be 30-60 minutes.
Speaker sessions present research, share applications, practices, or topics of interest related to the effective use of data, analytics, information, and evidence for decision making that benefit students and institutions. One to three presenters may lead sessions. At least 10 minutes should be reserved for Q&A. Presentation slides are expected, and supplementary materials/handouts summarizing the presentation should be emailed to email@example.com at least two weeks prior to the symposium.
Speaker sessions will be 45 minutes.
Panel Sessions include multiple perspectives about an application, practice, or topic of interest related to the effective use of data in higher education. Panels are composed of a maximum of 4 presenters with an additional option for a moderator. Panelists should have identifiable, unique points of view about the topic. Proposals must identify the presentation structure that will be used to present the multi-perspective discussion session. Supplementary materials/handouts summarizing the presentation should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks prior to the symposium.
Panel sessions will be 60 minutes. Moderated questions from the audience will be shown on stage.
