Glen is the author of a new book, “The Patient Equation: The Precision Medicine Revolution in the Age of COVID-19 and Beyond.” which chronicles how the breakthroughs in new data-driven approaches to treatment, and the algorithms working in the background, are increasing our understanding of disease at both molecular and holistic, patient levels.

Join us for a one-one-one discussion with Glen on his vision of staying ahead of the curve in life sciences and health care.


Upcoming Events

Dr. Uché Blackstock is a Harvard-trained (College & Medical School) Emergency Medicine physician who is one of the nation’s leading voices on health disparities and equity. She frequently appears as an expert on CNN, MSNBC and Yahoo News, and testified before Congress addressing racial health disparities in the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Blackstock spent 15 years in academic medicine, most recently at NYU Langone Medical Center, before leaving at the end of 2019 to launch Advancing Health Equity. The organization’s primary mission is to help close the gap of persistent healthcare inequities by focusing on how healthcare providers care for a diverse patient population and how healthcare organizations support a diverse workforce. During this one-on-one interview, we will discuss what inspired Dr. Blackstock to leave academia, launch the company and help the healthcare and business community address the critical factors that contribute to health inequities.


To recognize the efforts of those displaying leadership during COVID-19, we have launched a new initiative called #NYCHBLeaders. Click below to learn more about these inspiring healthcare leaders.
