The conference features 3 main themes:
Talent, Tools, and Techniques to Improve Behavioral Health: Focus is on the growing domains on behavioral health in the broader health and healthcare spectrum. Thought leaders from diverse disciplines will share tool, strategies, and techniques to address and improve behavioral health issues. We will also explore innovative solutions in terms of access, availability, and funding of behavior health resources and tools.
Next Generation Engagement: Empowering each of us through information, technologies, devices, support systems, and mobile solutions are a great way to initiate the process of behavioral change. True engagement and behavior change require continuously available, real-time, personalized and targeted nudging that is distinctive and meaningful to that person. The right tools and technologies for the right person at the right time can help create a culture of health and optimize care.
Healthy Aging and Resilience: Healthy aging is about how we live and savor life rather than focusing on illness and disease. With the help of a platform of ecosystems and advanced technologies, we can promote, optimize, and sustain our lives. Moreover, the right technology for the right person at the right time can create a behavioral symphony of health and wellness that further add years to our lives and life to our years.
