Los Angeles, CA
Hello Fellow Self-Trackers,
One of our members, Paul Sonnier, has been involved with the planning of a very interesting event happening right here in San Diego at the end of January. The CommNexus event will involve a panel of experts that will discuss the new frontiers of personalized and wireless medicine. From the registration website:
Personalized Medicine: How Genomics and Wireless Technologies are Making Healthcare More Predictive, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory
Physicians can now individualize care according to each patient’s unique biology and engage patients in health and wellness promotion in unprecedented fashion. This opportunity has been enabled by wireless technologies, dramatic cost reductions in DNA sequencing, and increased access to health information via websites, blogs and online social networking. A panel of experts in medicine, genomics, and wireless health will discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by the convergence of these technological advances, and their relevance to the recent focus on cost containment and accountability in health care. The panelists will also address how this convergence can help stem the tide of rising chronic disease including diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancer.
