PUBLIC HEALTH IMPACT ON DIGITAL HEALTH: REINVENTING THE WHEEL
A panel on innovation in healthcare, focusing on the intersection of digital healthcare technologies, public health, and advocacy, featuring 4 accomplished industry leaders and UCLA alumni. In medicine and healthcare, digital technologies have the potential to transform unsustainable healthcare systems into sustainable ones, equalize the relationships between patient and provider, and ultimately improve health outcomes. This is an amazing opportunity for students of all levels to explore and ask questions about the future of healthcare and how we as students can contribute towards innovation in the medical field.

DOCUMENTARY NIGHT VIEWING & DISCUSSION
Join us for an educational documentary night as we watch the Academy Award nominated film Heroin(e). This documentary centers on the Opioid epidemic in Huntington, West Virginia where the overdose rate is 10 times the national average. The documentary follows various public officials as they try to deal with the epidemic and help those affected. After the 40 minute documentary we will have 20 minutes of guided discussion where we will talk about how the Opioid epidemic relates to public health. We hope to see you all there!

MENTAL HEALTH WORKSHOP: STRESS-(PH)REE WITH (PHA)MILY
As students interested in the intersection of the social determinants of health, mental health is a topic we often discuss when seeing patients. Yet, students often neglect the manifestation of mental health in their own lives, and we hope to remind the Bruin community of the importance of centering one’s own mental health and wellness when navigating life in these unprecedented times, higher education, and life beyond Westwood. Come join us to reflect on the ways in which mental health frames not only our society, but our day-to-day lives, and learn with us how we might work to mitigate stressors and navigate personal wellness with activities ranging from a roundtable discussion to yoga to guided meditation.
