Scaling Humanitarian Aid: From COVID and Ebola to Ukraine

Special Event
Event Format

In addition to his roles at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Jarone Lee is president and co-founder of Health Tech Without Borders, Inc., a global non-profit organization aiming to mitigate humanitarian disasters by leveraging digital tools and technology to provide immediate access to health resources. Since its inception, HTWB has helped more than 110,000 patients in regions of crisis to seek medical and psychological support and facilitated targeted training for more than 2,000 clinicians. It has been particularly active in deploying telehealth solutions in Ukraine as the country’s healthcare network was grievously strained by the Russian invasion, work that has been covered in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Scholars who have fled Russia or Belarus are particularly encouraged to take part in this event, alongside international scholars.
