About the Event
PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTIONS CAREFULLY. ONLY REGISTER IF YOU ARE WILLING AND CAN ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN THE EVENT.
---Introduction Sex, sexuality, reproductivity and pleasure are all things that occupy our minds from time to time. The way we think about and experience sex also affects our physical and mental health. How can technology help? Should it be allowed to help? In this panel discussion, we will explore how technology can help to empower our sexual health. It is a topic that feels even more relevant in times of social isolation and quarantine.
In helping the community with social distancing, this will be a fully remote session. But we will try to emulate as much as possible real-world connections through different activities, such as ice breakers and small discussion groups, and hope for an evening as fun and engaging as if we met in person!
---About One HealthTech One HealthTech is a volunteer-led community that supports and promotes under-represented groups to be future leaders in health innovation. We inspire, celebrate, enable and champion inclusivity and diversity in healthTech. Read more here and follow us on Twitter.
