Health is a function of genetics, the environment, and what we do with our lives. Everyone knows that. But increasingly the tools are being developed to take more control of all of the above, dramatically affecting what is possible in living longer and healthier lives, even in the face of a previously debilitating illness.
Getting a much more detailed picture of new advances in healthcare is the focus of Xconomy’s second annual Healthcare Summit. The summit will take place on Tuesday, November 18, at the stunning deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA. It’s a special, invitation-only event with some of the top leaders in healthcare, not just from Boston, but from around the country. With the summit just eight days away, this is the last best chance to get your invitation now.
You can view the current lineup for this special event here.
General registration is $795 (you can apply for a discount if you’re from a government organization, non-profit, or startup), and includes breakfast, lunch, and a reception after the event. To request an invitation, please write to: [email protected]. Just tell us a bit about yourself. If you are a service provider, it is not too late to sponsor this event.
We’ll have a chat with George Church of the Harvard Personal Genome Project, as well as a special session encompassing gene therapy and gene editing that’s called Genomic Medicine: From Science Fiction to Science Reality. At the other end of the spectrum is a panel (with demonstrations) on wearable devices. In between are looks at new ways to connect patients and doctors and big data and healthcare, including a talk from computer guru Stephen Wolfram.
There’s a lot more planned for this special day, and we’ve booked the entire museum. Again, to request your invitation, please write us at [email protected].
