An Agenda for QS Public Health by Lori Melichar & Bryan Sivak

From the Quantified Self Public Health Symposium

April 14, 2016

In this final talk from the QS Public Health Symposium, we asked two leading advocates for a culture of health to help set an agenda for our movement over the next year. Bryan Sivak is the former CTO of the US Department of Health and Human Services, and Lori Melichar is a director at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Bryan took the opportunity to specifically address a challenge to the industry. “The hardware manufacturers have to become more open with their algorithms and tools,” he said. “We’re never going to get to the right place in this universe unless we work together in certain ways, in a competition mode.”

And take note all of you with a data access project: Lori specifically invited you to apply to the foundation for support, saying: “We have an open application process and we want to hear your ideas.”

Please get in touch with us if you’d like to participate in 2016. Space is limited.

Watch Bryan and Lori’s talk on Medium.
