November 10th
4–5 PM Igniting DIGNITY through DIGITAL Health—
Connecting All People to Community

We hear a lot about the power of technology, patient empowerment and connected
communities. How can we possibly be successful in improving the health and well-being of
people if there are those among us who—for many reasons—are unable, unsure, or too
afraid to ask for help? Can technology, thoughtfully combined with humanity—provide a safe
pathway to access help—free from stigma and judgment. Our session shines a light on the
break-through work happening in and among communities the world over. Technology is
most powerful and patients and their care teams are most empowered, when everyone is
treated with respect. Want to know the secret to real patient engagement: Dignity. Want to
learn how Disruptive Women® are tapping technology’s power to spark dignity and
strengthen communities? Join us as we learn how people are making a difference in the lives
of young people with chronic conditions; transgender persons across the age spectrum;
frontline health workers; veterans; and others.

  • Santi Bhagat,MD, Founder, Physician Parent Caregivers—connecting young adults withchronic conditions. Santi will be bringing one of the young adults with her to speak.
