Digital Health on Campus: A Fireside Chat about Preparing the Next Generation of Digital Health Leaders

This session is geared towards Forum attendees that are part of or work with universities (practitioners, professors, students, funders) who are interested in developing or expanding their universities’ digital health programs. During this fireside chat, we will explore digital health’s role in graduate education in the United States, including its past and projected evolution. Professors and academic practitioners from Boston University, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Notre Dame will share their experiences building three very different global digital health education programs at their universities over the past three years. Drawing from this cumulative experience, they will share best practices and lessons learned in bringing digital health to campus – both in classroom settings, student-led initiatives, and research. The chat will be moderated by Dimagi, a digital health software leader that has engaged with multiple universities’ digital health programs worldwide and has been a part of an mHealth class at BU’s School of Public Health for the past three years.
Presented by Ed Bunker, Health Informatics Advisor, Jhpiego / Associate Director, JHSPH Public Health Informatics Certificate Program.
