Harnessing 21st Century Technological Innovation to Promote Health

Philanthropy New York, 79 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003

May 9, 2014

As society becomes increasingly connected through digital health and social media platforms, it has become possible to reach people and communities in powerful and meaningful new ways. These tools have the potential to help improve the health and well-being of anyone with access to 21st century technologies. How can grantmakers effectively harness the power of these new tools and create meaningful change that not only improves the health and wellness of communities but also addresses health equity and disparities? 

This strategic convening of funders provided participants with the opportunity to learn about innovative initiatives and programs that are using and developing technology and digital platforms for improving health and health care, to discuss the critical issues facing grantmakers and grantees invested in these innovative technologies and platforms, and to strategize on how the field of health philanthropy can take the next steps in supporting and using these tools.
