About This Talk

In the 21st Century, through Global Connectivity, we as humanity are closer together than ever before, but the chasms of inequity in healthcare still pose a major challenge. Dr. Gullapalli N Rao, Founder-Chair, L V Prasad Eye Institute, will be speaking at TIECON 2021 in the Global Connect Track on May 8th. He will share how LVPEI provided nearly a Million Telemedicine and empathy calls during the last FY, to ensure well being and post-surgical adherence, and which is more than the combined volume of all ophthalmology hospitals or practices in the United States. And how LVPEI through its world-leading research & innovation teams are leveraging Global Connectivity and other emergent technologies like AI, to serve Billions more, not only in India but throughout the ascending world (formerly called developing). Dr. Rao speaks of the man-machine convergence and how that will benefit humanity.
