FAIR HEALTH (Fostering AI/ML Research for Health Equity and Learning Transformation)
Monday, January 8, 2024, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
In person at Sarah Duke Gardens in Kirby Horton Hall
This event is open to anyone who is passionate about advancing healthcare through innovation while ensuring health equity and fairness in clinical algorithms, including faculty, staff, and students.
This workshop will delve into the critical issue of algorithmic bias and clinical decision making. This is an opportunity to gain essential insights and practical strategies to identify, mitigate, and evaluate bias in clinical algorithms. We will also explore the legal and ethical implications of algorithmic bias in healthcare, an aspect that is gaining increasing importance in today’s dynamic healthcare landscape. To enrich the workshop and encourage active participation, we have incorporated a combination of lectures and an interactive case study discussion, making it an even more rewarding experience for all attendees. By engaging in this workshop, and learning from one another, we can pave the way for a future where healthcare algorithms enhance patient care, minimize bias, and prioritize equity.
