One HealthTech London's Lunchtime Sessions are back, this time hosted by our pals of all things data science at the Alan Turing Institute.
This series aims to showcase the tip top folks working to make healthtech policy the best it can be, whilst also lifting the lids on their personal career journeys, current projects and future hopes... but without all the policy guff (keepin' it real folks).
The sessions will be 1 hour long in a "fireside chat" format, so perfect for you to nip out in your lunch break. As ever, these events are BYOL (Bring Your Own Lunch), so grab your sarnie and coffee and spend a fun and informative lunch break.
In this session we have the tip top Jess Morley (Tech Adviser, Department of Health and Social Care & Research Assistant, Data Ethics Lab, Oxford Internet Institute) and Indra Joshi (Digital Health & AI Clinical Lead, NHS England) who will be discussing all sorts, including the behind-the-scenes of the Code of Conduct for data-driven health.

- The Alan Turing Institute can be found on the 1st floor of the British Library. Head in through the main reception and head right and up two flights of stairs. On arrival, you should see a bright sign saying "Alan Turing Institute" as well as an Enigma machine (which is VERY cool)
- At times there can be BIG queues to get into the British Library due to bag checks. Make sure you leave an extra 10 minutes to get through security, or even better, don't bring a bag at all and walk straight through
About the hosts
Indra Joshi is the Clinical Lead for NHS England’s Empower the Person Portfolio overseeing the national citizen facing digital initiatives within the NHS with a focus on evidence, data, digital health standards and policy for AI. Indra has a unique portfolio with experience stretching across policy, governance, digital health and marketing, national project strategy and implementation; whilst remaining true to her professional training as an emergency medic. She is the Clinical Director of One HealthTech – a network which campaigns for the need and importance of better inclusion of all background, skill sets and disciplines in health technology. Alongside, she is a Vice Chair for the British Computer Society (Health), an international speaker and consultant on digital health, an expedition medic, and, most importantly, a mum to two wonderful little munchkins.
Jess Morley is a professional worrier and spends all her time worrying about the opportunity costs of not capitalising on the potential benefits of data-driven health whilst simultaneously worrying about the potentially very damaging impacts of pursuing the exact same thing. She tries to get over the crisis of indecision that this leaves her in by asking the academic and healthcare communities open and difficult questions and turning the answers into implementable policy. The operative word being tries.
