Reimagining Business and Management for a Healthier Society webinar series

Social and Environmental Responsibility for Health - Wednesday 27 October 2021

About this event:

Much of the discussion in health and healthcare currently focuses on how we can widen access to healthcare especially through health innovation and technology. It is without a doubt that we have an obligation to provide universal access to healthcare, but we also have an obligation to address the social and environmental issues that impact health.

The social and environmental determinants of health need to be addressed both in a local and global context. Many businesses are seeing these social determinants of health as part of the ESG (environmental, social and governance) responsibilities. In this webinar, we ask a panel of health and healthcare leaders to address the question of what it means to widen our responsibility beyond access, to include the social and environmental context of patients and citizens.

Event Information

Join the UCL Global Business School for Health for our webinar on the subject of the Social and Environmental Responsibility for Health. This event is the first in our series of 'Reimagining Health and Business for a Healthier Society' webinars that will run across the 2021/2022 academic year. All our webinars in this series are free and we welcome all those interested in the subject to join.

Wearable Technology and the Future of Healthcare webinar - Wednesday 24 November

About this event:

Across the world, we are seeing an acceleration of chronic diseases coupled with ageing societies that have longer life-expectancies with more co-morbidities. Consequently, there is a drive for health innovations that help us prevent or diagnosis illness sooner. Wearable technology from smart devices such as watches, etc. have been around for over a decade, but in the past year, they have been the focus both by big tech and the healthcare sector.

Covid-19 has caused an acceleration in the development and piloting of “wearables” to assist not only with fitness and lifestyle changes, but the monitoring of patients particularly after being discharged from hospitals. The expansion of devices and their uses promises to change health and healthcare. In this webinar, we asked a panel of health innovators and leaders to address the question of whether wearables and health-tech directed at consumers/patients is the way forward for better healthcare.

Event Information

Join the UCL Global Business School for Health for our webinar on the subject of Wearable Technology and the Future of Healthcare webinar. This event is the second in our series of 'Reimagining Health and Business for a Healthier Society' webinars that will run across the 2021/2022 academic year. All our webinars in this series are free and we welcome all those interested in the subject to join.
