CONFERENCE OVERVIEW | MENTAL HEALTH IN THE AGE OF COVID-19

COVID-19 has been described from multiple perspectives: as a global pandemic of grief for the families and communities who have suffered loss, and a pandemic of burnout for the frontline workers managing the crisis. COVID-19 has also created challenges of mental health disparities affecting communities of color disproportionately: a recent analysis showed the Black community had the greatest change over time in anxiety while Native Americans had the highest change over time in suicidal ideation. Our May Medicine X Annual Conference will address these issues and more as we tackle Mental Health in the age of COVID-19.

Limited access to healthcare, limited resources, and limited freedom of movement has triggered unprecedented changes in lives of millions. Mental health issues have become living experience for many. A recent analysis in the US, showed the Black community had the greatest change over time in anxiety while Native Americans had the highest change over time in suicidal ideation during the recent pandemic. Even harder impacted have been developing countries with less accessible and very limited resources in mental healthcare, leaving millions without care. Our May Medicine X Annual Conference will address these issues and more as we tackle Mental Health in the age of COVID-19.


At Medicine X | CHANGE we will meet the innovators who are disrupting health care throughout the globe. We will see the emerging technologies of today and learn how they will impact the health care we deliver and receive tomorrow.

We will explore the drivers of change through organizational leadership and creative collaboration outside of health care’s traditional silos.

We will be inspired by moonshot thinking and learn how to grow pockets of excellence and innovation to large-scale change. We will experience empathy and compassion. We will gain an understanding of the problems that matter most in health care.

Be ready to use what you learn at Medicine X to create a shared vision of collaborative change and participatory medicine of tomorrow.


THANK YOU
