Martin Mwelfwang is an internationally trained lawyer and a graduate student in the LLM program with a concentration in Law and Technology at the University of Ottawa. In an era where technology is shaping the future of healthcare, he believes that understanding the legal implications and ethical dimensions of tech adoption is paramount. He researches the intersection of law, technology, and healthcare, examining the ethical, legal, policy, and regulatory dimensions of emerging technologies (such as artificial intelligence and blockchain) in health ecosystems to ensure that these innovations align with the promotion of equity, diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and belongingness in health landscapes. Specifically, he examines how technology as a catalyst can positively enhance EDIA in health ecosystems and simultaneously mask or reinforce embedded inequities.
Martin envisions a future where the healthcare ecosystem is not only technologically advanced but also inherently fair, inclusive, and accessible to all individuals, regardless of their background or circumstances, due to collaborative and multidisciplinary research, advocacy, and policy development.
