This month we tackle what comes next in healthcare tech and public health trends as we transition from the sprint to the post-pandemic marathon and a shifting healthcare landscape.
To meet the demands of economic recovery, the sequelae of COVID-19 long haulers, and prevent another pandemic of this magnitude, we must leverage new technologies for surveillance, digital healthcare, as well as preventative and corrective measures in Public Health.

The gig economy is a flexible employment system based on temporary job positions and short-term arrangements between an organization and an independent worker. Around 57 million people or 34% of the US workforce was somehow involved in the gig economy pre-pandemic and even though the pandemic affected the gig worker initially, the number of gig workers increased by 33% in 2020. This is a huge expanding segment of the US economy and our panelists will discuss how you can join in, avoid the pitfalls and survive and thrive in the growing gig economy.
