Elevating Kids Health Well Beyond Medicine
This session, called 'Elevating Kids Health: Well Beyond Medicine', revolved around child healthcare and the numerous innovations, challenges, and observations made in recent times. With Dr. Larry Moss, President and CEO of Nemours Children's Health, members of the organization, entrepreneurs, and healthcare experts on the panel, the discussion touched on the integration of advanced technology, implementation of health equity, and the need for strategic healthcare standards in addressing children’s health. Stressing the importance of children's health in long-term population health, the panel made the case for addressing social determinants, effective mental and behavioral health support systems, reducing healthcare disparities, building effective and sustainable healthcare models and nurturing corporate responsibility towards community health. Narrative-changing approaches, like treating children as wonders to behold, including children's voices in the discourse, and making healthcare more accessible, predictable, and standardized were also discussed.
