Empowering Women’s Health with Accessible Technology

Date & Time
Thursday, March 21, 2024 - 2:20 PM PDT  
Orange County 3-4  
If over half the population in the United States is female, and 20% identifies has having a disability, then why are the percentages shockingly low for accessible women’s healthcare technology? At the intersection of women’s health, disability, and accessibility, women are often met with stigma, misinformation, miseducation. Our presentation at CSUN will shatter misconceptions about women’s health for women with disabilities. We will take a unique look at the role technology plays in accommodating women’s health, and how accessible (or inaccessible) those options are for women with disabilities. We will delve into the technological accessibility and how accommodating they are to women of all abilities by looking at mobile and desktop apps, wearables, smart devices, remote and telehealth services, social media, and more. Moreover, we share how these types of technology support wider women’s health-centric issues as a phenomenon that no longer equates to lost productivity, time, health, education, and beyond. We hope to communicate our belief, backed by science and public health, that empowering women with healthcare choices leads to a stronger and healthier society. Coupled with accessibility, the potential is incredible. Our presentation will conclude on a positive note. By encouraging the development of more accessible women’s health solutions for women with disabilities, we can empower women of all abilities to live and grow with good health outcomes.
