Every day in 2020, almost 800 women – one every two minutes – died from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. And, almost 95% of all maternal deaths that year occurred in low and lower-middle-income countries. The U.S. infant mortality rate also has risen for the first time in more than 20 years.

The speakers will discuss their vision for impactful mental health solutions– and what will be possible – as a result of neuroscience innovation. They will discuss how these technologies may integrate into daily life and impact the way society addresses and manage mental health in a post-humanist future. Finally, they will imagine how neurotech will revolutionize new approaches to both mental and physical health treatment and disease prevention.
