DarioHealth Presents at the Fifth International Vatican Conference


Rick Anderson to Discuss the Role of Digital Health to Manage Chronic Diseases Alongside Global Luminaries Gathered to Explore the Latest Breakthroughs in Medicine, Health Care and Prevention

Rick Anderson, President and General Manager of North America, will participate in the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture and The Cura Foundation’s Fifth International Vatican Conference. Mr. Anderson was invited to discuss how technology can be used to support sustained behavior change and improve the health of people managing chronic diseases as part of the “Insights and Perspectives” track at the conference to be presented virtually from May 6 through May 8, 2021.

The conference unites leading physicians, scientists, patient advocates, policy makers, and other influential leaders from around the world to share insights on the latest breakthroughs in medicine, health care delivery and prevention – with the goal of globally advancing human health. Speakers will include Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, U.S. National Institutes of Health, Dr. Jane Goodall, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, and Jo Ann Jenkins, CEO of AARP, among others.

The 2021 conference will initiate the global #UnitedToPrevent campaign with the theme “Exploring the Mind, Body & Soul,” moderated by distinguished journalists – among them Katie Couric, Moira Forbes, Dr. Max Gomez, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Richard Lui, Dr. Mehmet C. Oz, and others. Speakers will engage in conversations to examine how innovations and novel delivery systems improve human health – a theme Mr. Anderson will discuss while providing insights on why access to high-quality, affordable care is important for preventing and managing chronic diseases. He will also share expertise on how digital health solutions can be used to increase underserved communities’ access to information and therapies that improve patient outcomes.

“Technology available today offers a powerful alternative that combines the benefits of AI based dynamic personalization, biofeedback and a digital delivery platform with the human touch and personal support people need to establish sustained behavior change. Digital therapeutic tools can provide greater health equity and access through asynchronous distributed care.”
