Harnessing the power of science and technology can save lives everywhere. It might just save yours.

Lack of accessible healthcare is a global issue.

Easy and quick access to doctors is low in rural, remote, or underdeveloped regions. Such lack of accessible healthcare contributes to preventable deaths.

Furthermore, the world’s population is aging. There are now more Americans over the age of 65 than any other time in US history, with this number projected to double by 2050. Growing old is accompanied by an increased incidence of health conditions, such as stroke, heart disease, and diabetes, meaning more people than ever before need regular access to a healthcare professional. How can our current healthcare system keep up with this ever increasing demand for medical treatment?
Come hear a fascinating and inspiring talk on the intersection of science, technology, and healthcare, by Dr. David Putrino, P.T., Ph.D. With the power of science, the Putrino Laboratory is developing the technology to improve the standard of care for patients everywhere.

You will learn about:

  • The science underlying common killers (i.e. stroke, heart disease, suicide) and what you can do to avoid them.
  • How technology can be used to increase a doctor’s ability to treat patients more effectively, and more personally, than ever before.
  • How YOU can get involved in transforming science and technology into real, accessible healthcare solutions!

Dr. Putrino’s talk will be followed by a food and wine reception.

Brought to you by Know Science and NYC Health Business Leaders in honor of the World Science Festival.
