Topic: Health Privacy in a Fully Connected World: The Loss of Autonomy or Better Opportunities for Longevity?

In the next few years, the entire concept of how medicine is practiced will change. Data collected from wearables, our DNA, and online actions will be used to chart who we are and drive healthcare decisions. The challenge will be managing to achieve the healthcare benefits and innovation while assuring privacy and data security. You are invited to an interactive, lively and revealing conversation with leading technology and privacy experts to explore the future of health privacy and the pioneering technologies that are changing the game.
