Fordham University and the Global Healthcare Innovation Management Center of the Gabelli School of Business, in partnership with the United Nations Digital Health Task Force, are pleased to invite you to a United Nations-sponsored event.

The Digital Health Innovation Divide will bring together global health leaders in a unique role-play simulation that looks at what happens when promising digital health technologies are faced with competing public policy and private-sector interests. See how our panelists handle complex ethical, business, and health equity and access issues regarding a hypothetical, at-home, patient monitoring device that can revolutionize early cancer prevention and treatment. While the innovation could lead to faster, better, and cheaper global health outcomes, find out what may be the obstacles to achieving these desirable goals.
