Food production & health: the good, the bad and the ugly (Melbourne)
Join us to discuss how the use of chemicals in our households, antibiotics in food-production lead to adverse effects in human health. Learn about some solutions to tackle these problems.
Date & Time
OHT Melbourne Hub is inviting you to participate in an online event on the use of chemicals in our households, antibiotics in food-production lead to adverse effects in human health.
Pesticides and Health: What is 'safe'? - Alec Margolin, GOC
Does the old adage "the dose makes the poison'' hold true for pesticides? If pesticides are considered safe then why the need for protective equipment? Discover what we know about the effects of common household and commercial pesticides on human health as well as the legal status and politicisation around the globe.
How does the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals lead to antimicrobial resistance in humans? - Frederic Versavel, Proviron:
The use of antibiotics in farming leads to AntiMicrobial Resistance (AMR) in humans and directly affects human health. Proviron -being a chemical company with esterification as core technology- has developed, tested, produced and marketed several animal health improving products helping to reduce the use of antibiotics in feed. Hence helping to reduce the global health concern of AntiMicrobial Resistance

Protected Characteristics and Data Sharing in Healthcare (London)
Join us for this fascinating online event on how to navigate the tension between regulation and the sharing of data on protected characteristic in healthcare.
Date & Time
The One HealthTech London hub is super excited to partner with Privitar to host a community hangout to discuss health data sharing and protected characteristics such as age, race, sexual orientation and disability. The health and social care sector is relatively advanced when it comes to using data, whether Big or small, electronic or paper, to inform better care. However, data-driven care is only as effective as the underlying data. Addressing inequalities in health outcomes and health service delivery requires access to high quality data, including on protected characteristics. The coronavirus pandemic highlights the challenges. Covid-19 has disproportionately affected men, who are black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME). Data collection has improved, but sharing and using data on protected characteristics remains challenging from an information governance, legal, technical, ethical and sociological perspective.
Topics we will address:
Why are we seeing different health outcomes for different groups? Can we identify correlation and/or causation between health outcomes and factors like ethnicity, socio-economic circumstances or unequal access to treatment? What can the data tell us?
Does our approach to sharing change when a dataset contains information on protected characteristics? How should data governance models address overlaps between data protection, equalities and human rights law (e.g. GDPR, Equality Act 2010, Human Rights Act 1998)?
If we decide not to share, what impact does incomplete training data (i.e. without data on protected characteristics) have on data-driven projects? Can we use legal bans on bias (e.g. in the Equality Act 2010) to guide thinking about harm before it occurs?
Registration: Privitar will handle the resgistration logistics as there is the opportunity for you receive a little pre-event gift (woohoo!). To register please use the following link

Small discussion group on the topic of leadership in crisis. This is a part of the Article Club series by One HealthTech Stockholm
Date & Time
Welcome to OHT Stockholm's Article Club!
We will be hosting a series of small in-person discussion groups, with each focused on a chosen topic related to health-tech, diversity and inclusion.
The first session's topic will be leadership in crisis.
The aim of the Article Club is to create an informal space for everyone to share their experiences and learn from each other. The groups will be kept small to ensure all participants can have a voice in the discussion.
This is an opportunity to meet someone new in our community and have an informal chat about our thoughts and experiences. It's open to anyone interested in the chosen topic, regardless of whether you work in health-tech or not.
When and where
Option 1: Article walking club at Rålambshovsparken
13: 00-14: 00, Saturday, 3 October 2020
We will take a stroll around the park before ending up in a café for a fika. You will receive the details about the meeting spot and the trail path after you register.
Option 2: Article breakfast club at café near Hötorget
08: 00-09: 00, Wednesday, 6 October 2020
We will meet at a café near Hötorget subway station, and chat over breakfast and/or coffee (buy your own).
For both options, we will do as much as possible to make sure the meet-up happens in a safe environment with plenty of space to spread out. This is also why we have limited the number of tickets to eight.
Please only register if you are confident you can attend, and make sure you have no fever or respiratory / cold symptoms.
This session's topic
Leadership in crisis
At our meet-up, we will discuss what makes a good leader, what are our experiences of good leadership, and what can we do more - either as a leader or employee - to encourage and prioritize inclusive behaviors.
When you're a leader, you might often focus on:
Have I communicated our vision correctly to the team?
Am I applying an effective decision-making process?
Do I display an executive presence?
But what about in a time of crisis such as the pandemic?
Crisis test tension and some emerge as a compassionate leader that can think clearly, offer reassurance and help lift people up. Others in crisis mode can fall into patterns of bias and exclusion - intentionally or unintentionally.
At our meet-up, we will discuss what makes a good leader, what are our experiences of good leadership, and what can we do more - either as a leader or employee - to encourage and prioritize inclusive behaviours.
When you register, you will receive two article links around this topic, as well as some discussion questions to get you started.
