Upcoming Meetings

Meetings are generally held on the third Friday of every month, or as set forth below:

July 21 - Dialogue on AI and Mentoring, with New Winston Fellows

Our next meeting of Health TechNet will be held on Friday, July 21 from 12:00 noon to 2 pm at Nelson Mullins’ offices in Washington, D.C. and will focus on AI and mentoring younger people in healthcare.

At this meeting, we plan to have a dialogue on two inter-related topics: 1) the continued buzz about Artificial Intelligence (AI), and 2) the power of mentoring younger people seeking to find their way in the ever-changing healthcare field. A couple of months ago, we held an informational session on AI, and since then, this has continued to be a highly dominant topic with many nuances and applications. It seems to  be a set of issues whose ramifications we will continue to discuss, and we would like to have a free-flowing dialogue on it again this month with our members sharing their impressions on where it may lead.  AI is also a topic of great interest to the two new Winston Fellows, who have asked to attend the meeting and discuss their mentoring experiences in DC as they make the rounds interviewing senior players in the federal government and the private sector.  As many of you know, the Winston Fellowship (see About Us - Winston Health Fellowship (winstonfellowship.org)) selects and sponsors two students each year from graduate programs of health administration and places them for a year on Capitol Hill or the Executive Branch to expose them to the process of health policy formation.  This year’s fellows are Katarina Morgan from Harvard and Ari Panzer from Duke. Their resumes are attached.  They, and other members of our group, will discuss their mentoring experiences especially around new trends they are grappling with. We will also focus on how Health TechNet can be a mentoring resource to younger members of the healthcare technology field. We hope you all will consider and share your own experiences with mentoring, how it helped shape your careers. and how our group might focus on mentoring others in the future.

The meeting will be held in Nelson Mullins’ 9th floor Rotunda conference room at 101 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC. There is easy access to the office by Metro and car, and parking is available in the building at a cost to the member of around $25. Directions and a map are attached.  (The parking entrance is on 2nd street on the west side of the building.)

A light lunch will be served. Your RSVP as soon as possible would greatly assist us on the food count and name tags, as would your notifying us in the event you accept but later cannot attend so we don’t waste your dues money on extra meals.

We look forward to seeing you once again on July 21!
