A Holiday Happening brought to you by Disruptive Women in Health Care & Women in Healthcare DC
Wednesday, December 9, 2016, 4:30—6:30 PM
2015 was a momentous year when it comes to aging: it marked the 50th anniversary of Medicare, Medicaid, and the Older Americans Act, as well as the 80th anniversary of Social Security, not to mention the White House Conference on Aging which took place over the summer. And, at a local level, along with fourteen other worldwide jurisdictions, Age-Friendly DC was selected to participate in a pilot project assessing the World Health Organization’s Draft Age-Friendly City Core Indicator Guide. All this got us thinking. What is aging really, and how are people preparing for this phase of life: for yourself, for your family? What progress have we made on the Caregiving front? How is technology helping?
Join us as we celebrate the holiday season and the gift of growing another year older.
Hear from women (and an audacious man), all of whom are studying and living these issues:
- Congresswoman Debbie Dingell
- Nora Super, White House Office on Aging
- Gail Krohn, Age-Friendly DC, DC Office of the Aging
- David J. Gross, PhD, Former AARP Senior Policy Advisor, Caregiver
Moderator: Joy Burwell, Disruptive Women in Health Care
Don’t forget to follow our Aging Audaciously series, December 1-9th on www.disruptivewomen.net

Disruptive Women at the mHealth Summit 2015
Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center
The Disruptive Women are ready to be disruptive again.
An online advocacy group of more than 100 women, Disruptive Women in Health Care has been a part of the mHealth Summit since its inception some seven years ago, combining an education session with a highly anticipated evening social that focuses on networking and “substantive idea-sharing,” according to founder, president and CEO Robin Strongin.
And while once again celebrating some of the top female movers and shakers in the healthcare universe at the 2015 mHealth Summit, the group also wants to shine the light on populations who aren’t able to benefit fully from mHealth technology – minorities, veterans struggling with behavioral health issues, the LGBT community and those with chronic conditions like epilepsy and cystic fibrosis.
[Learn more about the 2015 mHealth Summit.]
“We hear a lot about the power of technology, patient empowerment and connected communities,” the group says in a prepared introduction to the session. “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?”
“We’re very concerned about getting everyone to benefit from the power of digital healthcare,” says Strongin, a Washington D.C.-based public affairs executive. She says mHealth technology could be better used to reach populations who don’t regularly access healthcare for one reason or another, be it economic, cultural or social, empowering them to improve their lifestyles.
“We hear a lot of talk about patient engagement, a lot of rhetoric, but no real action,” she says. “We need to stay focused, to reach out to people who can’t engage for one reason or another. A lot of it comes down to, are we really providing activation for these people?”
Called “Igniting DIGNITY through DIGITAL Health – Connecting All People to Community,” the education session takes place from 4-5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10 in National Harbor 4-5. Immediately after, the group will move to the Pose Ultra Lounge for a celebration and networking reception.
As in past years, the session will also feature several “disruptive women” who have led the push to make mHealth a priority across the globe. The scheduled speakers are Strongin, Lesley-Anne Long, global director of mPowering Frontline Health Workers; Rachel Butler of SocialWellth; Santi Bhagat, founder of Physician Parent Caregivers; and Nancy Green, a principal at Verizon Ventures. The group will then identify their “Disruptive Women to Watch” in 2016.

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;
