The National Heart, Lung, Blood and Institute (NHLBI) is hosting a virtual research workshop to discuss barriers to—and opportunities for—improving heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) health in underserved communities. Participants will discuss how to tailor health monitoring devices and tools that diagnose patients to underserved, low-resource, and remote communities.

Participants will:
* Identify practical and affordable technology solutions to diagnose and manage HLBS diseases
* Prioritize the ones that could have the greatest impact in these underserved groups
* Determine the ones best suited for further research and testing

Join technology and medical device experts, implementation scientists, community health workers, and many others for discussions on:
* Technology and data use to improve HLBS health in these communities
* Effective community strategies for disease management
* Device development for use in these communities
* Innovative diagnostic tools and programs that could be used as models
