8:00 AM – 10:00 AM
What if the outer edges of human experience could provide solutions to everyday challenges? Often, our mental constructs and perceived limitations hinder our search for inspiration. What if we made a point of venturing into the most unusual and unexpected places for answers? Topics considered for this session include sexual deviance, extreme altruism, artistic patients, and wild adventures.
10:30 AM – 12:15 PM
What if visionaries ruled the world? In a rapid-fire series of creative, shortform talks, dozens of inspiring health entrepreneurs will share how their ideas and innovations are affecting change in every area of health and medicine. To name just a few, this session will feature disruptive thinking applied to therapeutics for aging and the microbiome, tools for diagnosing cancers, global philanthropy, methods for delivering care to those in need, public health initiatives, managing long-term disease, and much more
2:00 PM – 3:45 PM
What if we could expose and confront invisible threats to health? It’s getting easier for us to monitor and keep track of our health data-but what about the influences on our health that we can’t (or won’t) see and measure? Topics considered for this session include suicide, pandemics, trafficking, environmental toxins, and poverty.
6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
What if we possess the knowledge to be the architects of our aging and (eventual) deaths? We’ve made significant strides in understanding exactly what happens to our bodies as we age. Might we master our bodies and soulful understanding of self to the point that we will determine the way we die? Topics considered for this session include the caregiver crisis, dementia, the neuroarchitecture of memory, and the science of aging.
