DAta Diversity Initiative

Advanced technologies are helping to unlock the potential of biomedical data and extract valuable insights like never before. However, behind these new technologies lies a data gap that threatens to exacerbate existing health disparities. We have made it our mission to join forces across industries to create tangible solutions to this urgent issue.


Solving this issue is dependent on raising awareness of the lack of diverse data used in biomedical research, and the impact this can have on patients lives.
