Join a conversation on November 4, 2021, 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. with public health experts, clinicians, scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs to discuss lessons learned from California over the past year and the future possibilities for deploying exposure notification systems to meet public health challenges.
One year ago, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) partnered with UC San Diego Health, Google, Apple, and the California Department of Technology (CDT) to build CA Notify—a smartphone-based exposure notification (EN) system—to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in California.
CA Notify was first piloted and promoted on the UC San Diego campus, before expanding to other University of California campuses. In December 2020, CA Notify launched statewide.
Given the novelty of the technology, CA Notify’s public health utility and impact were originally unclear; however, building evidence suggests that the technology offers the public an additional layer of protection from COVID-19 via a rapid, private, and scalable exposure notification process.
Register for “CA Notify One-Year Later—Exposure Notifications at the Crossroads of Technology + Public Health.”
See the agenda for CA Notify One Year Later. The program features opening remarks by Dr. Tomas Aragon, a keynote on the Role of EN for Public Health and Future Pandemics, panel discussions, and another keynote on Digital Health and Healthy Choices in the Time of COVID-19.
The program is hosted by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the UC San Diego Health Center for Health Innovation. Please email questions to CANotify.Symposium@cdph.ca.gov.
