Addressing Health Disparities: Is Technology the Answer?

2021 Virtual Symposium on Health Law and Intellectual Property

April 29, 2021 9:00 a.m. - 3:45 p.m. (central time)

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 signi fi cant questions about who has access to these innovations and whether they are advancing the interests of the populations with the greatest needs.

At this interdisciplinary symposium, three panels will address:

• Changes to Laws and Regulations Governing Telemedicine • Implementation of COVID-19 Treatments and Vaccines to Maximize Public Health Bene fi ts and Equity • High-Cost Treatment Disparities: Who Gets Access, Who Pays?
