We strongly encourage participation from individuals and institutions who belong and serve underrepresented groups. It is critical the discussion includes a diversity of voices, experiences, and perspectives.
The AIM-AHEAD coordinating center was established to enhance diversity in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), with emphasis on reducing health disparities and promoting health equity. We hope to achieve this by engaging in a fair, equitable, and transparent process of building a consortium of AI/ML to promote health equity and an inclusive and diverse workforce. Many communities have untapped potential to contribute new expertise, data, recruitment strategies, and cutting-edge science to the AI/ML field. AIM-AHEAD Coordinating Center seeks to increase participation and engagement through mutually beneficial partnerships, stakeholder engagement, and outreach to advance health equity.
Sessions will include exciting talks from speakers, round table discussions, and panels to address topics in AI and Health Equity. Please join us as we spark a discussion with stakeholders from industry, academia, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), community stakeholders, healthcare providers & systems, the public, and MORE!
