About VITALS Conference

Throughout this past year, social injustices and the COVID-19 pandemic have brought issues of health inequity to light. As a result, many leaders in the health care industry are increasingly focusing their efforts to ensure people from all socioeconomic backgrounds have access to affordable health care and education. These players are seeking solutions to disparities in every facet of health care, from FemTech to large-scale diversity initiatives. At VITALS 2022, we will explore what it will take to move toward a future of equitable health care and examine where we now stand. The daylong, no-cost event will include keynote speakers, networking opportunities and interactive panel discussions on:

  • FemTech and women’s health: This discussion will feature Tracy MacNeal, president and CEO of Materna, and Anastasia Kasianchuk, director and head of coaching at Gennev.
  • Diversity and inclusion in clinical research: How does health equity factor into clinical research, and what is needed for long-term success?
  • The role of artificial intelligence (AI) in health care: Is AI contributing to inequities in health care, or is it a potential long-term solution?
  • On-the-ground operations required for achieving health care equity: What are the strategies necessary for success as companies move beyond simply setting a vision?
  • Bruin tank pitch competition featuring diverse founders and investors: Meet up-and-coming innovators addressing the needs of health care today! This competition will feature investors from Halogen Ventures, Bread and Butter Ventures and Lux Capital as they consider the pitches of startups STIGMA, SmartDoctor and Candid.
