Innovations in Human Health

At MIT, we focus our strengths in education, research, and innovation on critical, interconnected issues in human health, from prevention strategies to life-saving treatments that are equitably applied across societies. In 2020, we pivoted swiftly to confront the Covid-19 pandemic while maintaining and expanding research across the Institute.

Register today to join us online on February 18 to hear insights from Institute leaders, faculty, and alumni who are using their knowledge to advance global health on multiple fronts.

After the main session, you will be able to choose from a variety of concurrent, interactive breakout sessions. There, MIT faculty, staff, and students will share research highlights and news from across the Institute.

MIT Sloan alumni are invited to join a school-specific breakout and networking session. Hear from Associate Dean of External Relations and Global Programs Kathryn Hawkes as she shares information about MIT Sloan today and research highlights from our health care faculty and initiatives. Take the opportunity to turn on your camera and say hello to your fellow Sloanies!

Programming will be closed captioned from 7:00–8:30 pm ET.
