Public Health Summer Institute 2023: Draft Program Released
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly advancing field with the power to revolutionize various sectors, including healthcare and public health. Day one of the Summer Institute will discuss the challenges and ethical considerations associated with AI, emphasizing the importance of inclusivity and equity in addressing them.
Day two will emphasize how healthy aging is a central public health concern for society as a whole and specific populations that suffer from health inequities. The imperative derives, in part, from the usual worries about aging demographics and pressure on health and social care systems that will inevitably threaten their sustainability.
