​Addressing Health Disparities: Is Technology the Answer?

2021 JHLI Symposium

April 29, 2021

9:00 a.m. - 3:45 p.m. (central time)

There are few spaces where rapid changes in technology impact our lives as profoundly as in the realm of healthcare. While advances in healthcare technologies signal immense progress for medicine and science, they also raise significant questions related to who has access to these innovations, and whether the advances are making us healthier as a whole. 

COVID-19 has laid bare the structural barriers at the root of health disparities in the U.S. This year’s Jaharis Symposium centers on the premise that while technological advances have the potential to revolutionize the delivery of health care, they also raise significant questions about who has access to these innovations and whether they are advancing the interests of the populations with the greatest needs.

DePaul College of Law is an approve​ MCLE provider.  This event is worth up to 5.75 general CLE hours.

​Co-sponsored by the Mary and Michael Jaharis Health Law Institute and the Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®).​
