What’s happening at HUBweek Wednesday
Day three of Boston’s HUBweek shines light on a variety of topics and features events on health, the economy, and the arts. Here are a few highlights:
“The Future of Digital Health, and the Women Behind it,” 11 a.m., 1 City Hall Square (Ideas Dome):
A panel of four women leaders who have shaped digital health in Boston will speak about the ways they’ve tried to create change in the industry, and how they managed to climb the career ladder along the way.

“Immigrant Entrepreneurs from Main Street to the Fort Point,” 3 p.m., 1 City Hall Square (Ideas Dome):
Attend this event to hear a discussion about the varied
roles of immigrants in the economy and what more can be done to support immigrant entrepreneurs. The seven panelists will represent UMass, MIT, and the Office of Mayor Martin J.

“HUBweek Walls,” 11 a.m., The Hub, 1 City Hall Square:
