Date: 
Friday, September 9, 2022 - 12:00pm - 12:45pm
Location: 
90 Spring Garden St.
Philadelphia, PA 19123
United States

Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia at B.PHL Innovation Fest as we explore what organizations, providers, payers, and others are doing to treat the whole person – both in Philadelphia and around the world – and how social determinants impact health.

In recent years, Philadelphia has gained global influence because of its healthcare institutions, high-quality universities, and business infrastructure. Philadelphia has a long and strong legacy as a global, welcoming city, with a vibrant and diverse community. Since a fourth of Philadelphians are immigrants or first-generation, finding treatments and approaches that are tailored to cultural backgrounds is an important piece of whole person health care.

The speakers will be Sophia Ononye-Onyia,who is the Founder and CEO, of The Sophia Consulting Firm and Seun O. Ross, PhD, the Executive Director of Health Equity at Independence Blue Cross. The moderator will be announced soon. 

This event is in person so make sure to register today!
