Real-world evidence offers a powerful look into how therapies and technologies work in everyday life. W!LD is excited to dive into what real-world evidence is, and the major impacts it has had in improving patient life and outcomes! Additionally, W!LD will explore the utility of real-world evidence and the science behind taking effective breaks to process information.(See event agenda here) To ensure our listeners can optimize their upcoming ADA conference experience, these presentations will provide relevant background and tools for the 81st Scientific Sessions.
Our gathering featured Professor Stephanie Creary, PhD, identity and diversity scholar and field researcher at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, in a keynote on "How to Elevate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Your Organization." Dr. Creary investigates how people effectively navigate identity-related tensions and boundaries at work, particularly around issues of inclusion and exclusion. In addition, Dr. Sahar Yousef, cognitive neuroscientist and faculty member at UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, shared her insights on “Creating Effective Cognitive Boundaries Between Work and Home” (see preview here).
