Quantified Self and the Future of Personal Health

Featuring Gary Wolf, Larry Smarr, and Dr. Eric Topol


Presented by:

 West Wireless                             QS logo


Health and healthcare are undergoing a radical shift due to the rise of personal sensing and medical tracking technologies. Personalized health is generating an new, more empowered generation of patients as well as new methods of preventive medicine. Additionally, the rapid growth in personal health and wellness tracking tools has spurred the the growth of the quantified self movement - a group of users and tool makers developing self knowledge through data collection. 

Join us at Atkinson Hall (CALIT2) for an exciting and informative panel discussion about the intersection of the quantified self movement and personalized medicine. Discussing these topics will be three leaders in their fields:


Gary Wolf

Gary Wolf is the co-founder of The Quantified Self, a global collaboration among users and makers of self-tracking tools. His is also a contributing editor at Wired magazine, where he writes regularly about the culture of science and technology. His work has appeared The Best American Science Writing (2009) and in The Best AmericanScience and Nature Writing (2009). In 2010, he was awarded the AAAS Kavli Science Journalism prize. In 2005-2006 he was a John S. Knight Fellow at Stanford University.


Larry Smarr

Larry Smarr is the founding Director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), a UC San Diego/UC Irvine parnertship, and hold the Harry E. Gruber professorship in Computer Science and Engineering at UCSD's Jacobs School. Dr. Smarr has recently been profiled by Xconomy about his '10-Year Quest for Quantified Health'


Dr Joseph Smith

Dr. Joseph Smith is the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Science Officer of the West Wireless Health Institute, Dr. Joseph M. Smith leads initiatives to identify and accelerate the use of health care innovations and technologies to advance the Institute's mission of lowering health care costs.
