The Future of Medicine: Science or Science Fiction
6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Q&A / Closing
Imagine the possibilities: getting a diagnosis from the comfort of our homes; real-time health monitoring from our cell phones; customizing a medical treatment plan based on your genetic makeup. In the decades to come, these will no longer be the scenarios you see from movies. What we deem as science fiction will slowly be integrated into our healthcare system.
Come join us on Monday, July 30 for a discussion on The Future of Medicine.
