Healthcare Gets Personal on Dec. 12 at Google: Here’s the Agenda
I first met George Church in the Connecticut backyard of literary agent John Brockman. It was 2007, and Church, the genomics pioneer, was giving an informal talk on synthetic biology. Afterwards, he got stung by some sort of weird-looking bee. The event stuck in my mind.
Here’s hoping next Thursday, Dec. 12, will be just as memorable (maybe without the bugs).
Church, who’s Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and a prolific entrepreneur, is keynoting our “Healthcare Gets Personal” conference, which will bring together a distinguished group of business and technology leaders for an afternoon of discussions and networking on personal health, wearables, and behavior tracking. It’s all happening from 4:00-6:00 pm at Google’s offices in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA.
The full agenda is here (there may be some tweaks and additions).
—Professor Church will outline his vision for personal genomics and personal health. Well, at least some highlights.
—Joe Concra from O+ Festival will close out the day with some inspirational words on the art of medicine and healthcare.
Looking forward to seeing you on 12/12. There are still a few tickets left, which you can pick up here.
