About this conference
A robot called Watson now reviews case histories at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Wireless devices help doctors personalize medicine to unprecedented degrees. Biomedical research has led to game-changing discoveries about drug production, and 3-D printing may eliminate epidemics. Yet, despite these advances, health care in 2013 faces significant challenges as leaders at the federal and state level struggle to navigate and improve new policies.
Join The Atlantic for a series of deep-dive conversations on effective palliative care, promising advances in technology, the ethical complexities looming behind health insurance, and more.
