Diversity and Inclusion in an Uncertain World
Inclusion in an Uncertain World
The Future of Safety Management in Healthcare
One of healthcare’s most extraordinary feats is keeping people safe and campuses secure, however, with sudden shocks to the systems, such as coronavirus, systems need to take both reactive and proactive approaches. In the context of broader safety management, we'll explore a range of subjects, such as infection control (coronavirus), patient safety, cybersecurity, resiliency, electrical shock protection, security, and beyond.
The Future of Utilization Management Programs
We are trying to understand how medical providers think about Utilization Management. How do prior authorizations, intake, and appeals affect their practices? What are their thoughts on making the experience better?
The Future of Plant-Based Milk Drinks within the Philippines
As more consumers gravitate towards healthy alternatives to milk, we'll discuss a range of current & emerging trends impacting plant-based milk market in the Philippines, such as Health & Wellness, Cultural & Consumer Attitudes, Nutrition, Creative Packaging, Ready-To-Drink (RTD), and Plant-Based Options (e.g. Oat Milk, Soy Milk, Coconut Milk, Almond Milk, Rice Milk, Bubble Tea, etc.)
Technology's Impact on the Future of Higher Education
One of the biggest issues facing High Education institutions in the United States is an inability to facilitate distance learning. Up to 95% of students' applications are not getting reviewed because of Universities inability to support distance learning.

I want to discuss how the exponential increase in technology we are experiencing now can help universities expand their capabilities to accept more distance learners and provide a better "classroom" experience for these students.

Some technologies that could specifically be discussed are: Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, 5G, and smart technology that is being more utilized in businesses and offices.
Estrogen's Impact on Cortisol Production
There has been a significant up-tick in scientific publications regarding gender differences in the response and regulation of the hypothalamus/pituitary/adrenal (HPA) axis. In women, the presence of estrogen and normal fluctuation that occurs over a woman's 28-day cycle causes an amplification in cortisol production that can lead to significant fatigue/tiredness/cognitive impairment. (Conversely, testosterone has a dampening effect on cortisol.) While the production of cortisol is an adaptive response to managing stress, both low and high levels are associated with a variety of chronic symptoms, which is dominated by fatigue and feelings of stress.
So what does this result in?
● Women report fatigue 2x as often as men
● Stress levels are 50% higher than men
● Women are 2x as likely to suffer from anxiety disorders and depression
● 67% of women report poor sleep.

This project aims to determine if there is basis for managing the response and regulation of the HPA axis, addressing chronic fatigue and stress among women.
Hydration Solutions for the Aging Population
Hydration Solutions for the Aging Population

A clear trend is emerging in "senior tech". While 10,000 adults turn 65 each day and want to age at home, almost all the innovation in the space is designed for and targeted towards institutional care. Consequently, most aging adults and their caregiving ecosystems remain significantly underserved, creating a unique opportunity to build solutions around the many struggling moments faced in the in-home context. The opportunity we'd like to explore is the detection and management of hydration in aging people.

Overall, we are looking for disruptive solutions that solve hard problems in a dignified way in the area of Activities of Daily Living that address some of the biggest threats to being able to age and thrive at home.
