#InventHealth Behavioral & Mental Health 2019 @ UCSF

Editor's note: Vator, HP and UCSF's salon - "Future of Clinics" is on June 27. Need relationships to grow your digital health startup? Register and network with fast-growing startups and established healthcare companies, such as HP, Dignity Health, Sutter Health, One Medical, Crossover Health and more. 

Vator and UCSF Health Hub held the first salon of 2019 called The Future of Mental and Behavioral Health, where VCs, innovators, and adopters (payers/providers) discussed how mental and behavioral health startups are creating solutions to help those suffering from mental health conditions. 

In this panel, we talked with the tech pioneers and adopters. They shared new technologies that address our emotional well-being, from mild anxiety to comorbidities.  What are these new tools? Are they diagnostics, screenings, treatments and how effective are they?

The panel was moderated by Bambi Francisco Roizen (Founder & CEO, Vator) and Archana Dubey (Global Medical Director at HP) with the panelists: Eva Borden (Managing Director, Behavioral and Medical Solutions, Cigna), Ofer Leidner (Co-Founder and President, Happify Health), Alon Matas (President, Teladoc's, Brent Vaughan (CEO, Cognoa), David Lim (Chief Medical Officer, Quartet Health)

Thanks to UCSF Health Hub and Vator for hosting the event and to our sponsors: BetterHelpAdvsrAvison YoungScrubbedHP and Stratpoint.
