Health | Tech | Food is a space and time to innovate around the
core health issues of New York through the lens of social technology.
While social technology most frequently addresses the upper half
of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, we will explore how these same
technologies can also serve greater societal needs, namely, our
health. Following short, grounding presentations from renown
thought leaders, participants will engage in one of four ideation
workshops: open source health, food
systems, the quantified self or
mobile health. All ideation inputs and outputs
will be publicly published so that anyone can adopt and implement the solutions.
