Health Leaders Gather at SXSW to Imagine Health in a Post Pandemic World

AUSTIN, Texas, March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Health care leaders are gathering together online this month as part of the virtual SXSW Conference. Energizing Health is convening SXSW sessions that address subjects such as senior adult isolation, Black maternal health, and what the data says about the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Energizing Health is convening SXSW sessions addressing senior adult isolation, Black maternal health, and COVID-19 data

Two years ago, Energizing Health convened leaders from across the globe to "Imagine a World without Sickness" at SXSW. After "Imaging" together with thousands, the following year SXSW was one of the first conferences to cancel because of COVID-19. This year's virtual gathering brings together health care leaders that are looking at the road ahead, and how we all live in a world in recovery from the pandemic.

Home Instead Senior Care is presenting much of the Energizing Health programming during SXSW. "Despite advances in innovation and technology and the increasing "connectedness" that's brought, we are lonelier than we have ever been," says Jisella Dolan, Chief Global Advocacy Officer at Home Instead. "This is especially true of senior adults."

Other initiatives addressed during this year's event include sessions such as "Anti-racism Innovations to Improve Health Equity in Cancer Care," "Health Equity through Coordinated Care," and "Postpartum Probability: Maternal Health Justice."

"We're excited to be able to bring these sessions to the virtual SXSW," says Brian Lang, CEO, Energizing Health. "We had such a great convening ready for SXSW 2020 with http://Justice.Health that had to be canceled. But with this year's program, we're looking forward to the road ahead."
