Creating a Healthier Future with Healthsocal.ai
Utilizing AI to build a healthier future for all of Southern California.
healthsocal.ai is designed to establish SoCal as an AI Global SuperHub that advances the understanding and applicability of AI healthcare and positively impacts societal, environmental, and global issues while creating a positive economic impact for Southern California.
Why healthsocal.ai now? The U.S. spends nearly 2x the average of OECD countries, yet has the lowest life expectancy, the highest chronic illness burden, an obesity rate 2x OECD countries, and the highest suicide rates.
