Imagining a World Without Disease – Moving from Disease Management to Strategies Aimed at Interception, Prevention and Cure

Imagine a paradigm shift from disease care to health care through novel approaches aimed at prevention, interception, and cure.

Advances in science and technology have brought us closer to a world in which we can look beyond treating the symptoms of disease to a more holistic health care model that leverages areas such as genomics, diagnostics, digital health technologies, and behavioral science to detect disease at the earliest stage possible and then stop, reverse or inhibit progression in an individual.

Through two interactive panel discussions, thought leaders from industry and academia will provide insights on how a variety of tools can be leveraged or combined to create potentially transformative solutions for patients. Panelists will highlight their ongoing efforts to prevent, intercept, and cure disease, including lung cancer, and present their vision for future opportunities. This program’s focus spans across all sectors of the healthcare and life sciences industries, including biotechnology, life sciences, medical devices, consumer healthcare, and digital health.


TOPICS ADDRESSED BY THE PANELS

  • How can we collaborate to prevent and intercept disease?
  • What tools do we need to prevent and intercept disease?
  • How can “Big Data” (including molecular data and imaging data) be leveraged to prevent and intercept disease?
  • How can digital health products be used to prevent and intercept disease?
  • What role can imaging play in diagnosing and intercepting disease?
  • How can we build a better understanding of the underpinnings of disease to develop approaches to prevent, intercept, and cure disease?
  • How can behavioral science contribute to efforts to prevent and intercept disease?
