Session 1: Keynote | Advancing Healthtech towards Medical Inclusivity

After the keynote speech, the first panel session unfolds. Mr. Kazuo Miyazaki, CEO of MICAN Technologies, will deliver an opening presentation, setting the stage for a panel discussion centered around innovative health technology promoting medical inclusivity. Dr. Shuhei Tanami from Leave a Nest Co., Ltd., will moderate the discussion, emphasizing the showcase of cutting-edge health technology. The session aims to spark inspiration among the audience, encouraging idea generation and collaboration, with the ultimate objective of advancing medical inclusivity.

Study had shown that medical access rate are significantly different among different regions and based on 6 demographic variables (age, gender, marital status, educational level, occupation and wealth). More efforts are needed to enable medical access from people from various demographic (Medical inclusivity). In this session, we want to illustrate the innovative health-technology that enables medical inclusivity. From this session, we want the audience to start developing ideas and collaborating to achieve medical inclusivity.
