WelTel Inc. is on a mission to improve health equity through digital innovation, and the world is taking notice.

WelTel co-founder and CEO Dr. Gabrielle Serafini will join the “Women Leading in Health Tech” panel discussion at the upcoming Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization (WEDO) Summit on May 20 at the United Nations in New York.

“I’m thrilled to be invited to contribute to this amazing event and meet inspiring women entrepreneurs whose companies are taking action to advance global health equity by harnessing the power of cloud technology,” Serafini said.

Sponsored by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the panel includes four other trailblazing women founders and CEOs, and is moderated by Maggie Carter, Global Lead AWS Social Impact.

At the summit, Serafini will discuss recent work with First Nations and Maori communities in Canada and New Zealand, where WelTel’s text-first, multilingual platform is promoting health and language equity by ensuring everyone has access to timely, appropriate and culturally-safe virtual health care in their language of choice. She’ll also touch on WelTel’s role in Rwanda’s successful response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“WelTel’s digital health tools balance the functionality needed to overcome the barriers of distance and geography with a community-directed approach to health care that respects the priorities and traditions of the communities we serve.”
