The global COVID-19 crisis in 2020 was a testament to the critical role the healthcare system and associated innovation and collaboration play. The crisis represented one of the biggest health-related disasters in the world since the rise of modern medicine, leading to a dramatic loss of human life and presenting challenges to public health, food systems, and the world of work, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Black healthcare innovators have long played an instrumental part in strengthening healthcare systems, unlocking new levels of research and development while contributing significantly to modern medicine and treatment. Across the industry, the Black community’s inventive approaches continue to not only identify but also bridge critical healthcare gaps, fostering inclusivity while transforming challenges into opportunities.
Taking a look at some of the Black healthcare innovators who have made ground breaking discoveries, developed creative tools and solutions while inspiring new levels of research and education, it is clear that the global Black healthcare community has and will continue to be at the forefront of driving transformational change. Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green, for example, is a physicist and cancer researcher whose ground breaking approach to employing laser-activated nanoparticles to target and eliminate cancer cells has changed treatment strategies worldwide.
Additionally, Dr. Cato Laurencin is a surgeon-scientist known for his pioneering work in regenerative engineering. He has made significant contributions to tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, aiming to create solutions for tissue repair and regeneration. Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett is a viral immunologist who played a key role in the development of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Her research focuses on developing vaccines for emerging infectious diseases. These individuals are just a few of the many inspiring and instrumental healthcare stakeholders who have changed the way we look at and approach medicine.
Going forward, Black innovation is poised to inspire a new era of technology-driven health solutions. GBIS 2023, as a platform featuring innovators and thought-leaders from across the entire global economy, connects both the Black healthcare community while fostering engagement and integration between the healthcare industry and various other facets of the global economy. Specifically, by facilitating networking between healthcare and technology stakeholders, GBIS 2023 aims to foster new opportunities for integrated healthcare solutions.
The tech industry itself has played a crucial role in modernizing both health systems and medicines. Examples include the fusion of health technology and artificial intelligence which has paved the way for personalized medicine, predictive analytics, and remote patient monitoring. These trends offer opportunities for inventive solutions customized to individual needs. As the world transitions into a tech-based future, GBIS 2023 plays an instrumental part in fostering the innovations of tomorrow.
