Hosted virtually from Portland, Oregon, the Techlandia Summit ’21 is a series of programs designed to foster collaboration on focused topics that deliver better community outcomes through improved infrastructure and quality of life, efficient service delivery, sustainable and equitable growth, and long-term resilience.
Participants and thought leaders explored ways to improve the shared health, wellbeing, security, and prosperity of citizens through the deployment of data-driven and regionally appropriate services. This collaboration took place during a daily keynote and panel. The topic of Day Two was Health + Wellness, with a focus on improving human health and wellness outcomes and expanding access through the equitable development and implementation of innovative programs and technologies.
Addressing and Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace
Between a global pandemic and historic social unrest, the events of the past year shone a spotlight on a number of long-simmering issues and greatly exacerbated others. The mental health of entrepreneurs and executives who now face increasing pressures from stakeholders inside and outside of their organizations is one of these issues.
This panel features a discussion between leading mental health professionals and high-performing executives who have grappled with mental health issues. They shared telltale warning signs, as well as strategies and tips for navigating stressful situations and seeking help.
Equity and Resiliency in Public Health: Lessons Learned from the Past Year
From unequal access to healthcare information to wide disparities in the availability and quality of care across populations and geographies, the COVID-19 pandemic laid bare shortcomings of our current health system.
The panelists in our second session of Techlandia Summit: Health + Wellness shared perspectives from an urban-serving public health system, a rural-serving healthcare network, and a leading early-disease-detection biotech company. And what they learned from their research and front-line experience, and offer tangible recommendations for improvements that can be made to our healthcare to ensure outcomes that are more equitable and efficacious.
