This year, as we mark our 16th anniversary, we are excited to introduce a new format in which we will explore and aim to fuel the innovations and trends that are shaping the future of healthcare systems and life science. Networking is the name of the game. The new exciting format calls for an active participation by the conference’s attendees, which we believe will significantly enhance the value offered and the networking experience.
Aging is the central theme of the conference. We will study and discuss diseases affecting the elderly population such as chronic diseases, cancer, neuro-degenerative diseases, and diabetes. As we look at the future of our healthcare system, we would like to address ways to diagnose and treat elderly patients by utilizing new methods and innovations in precision medicine, genetics, personal diagnosis, treatment and monitoring with the ultimate goal of being preventive, if and when possible. Digital health can play a major role in addressing these fields. In addition issues of cybersecurity are raised in association with the use of these new technologies. And, as we think of aged individuals, we cannot but think of robotics, regenerative and cell therapies. All these and more will be presented and discussed as our healthcare systems have become open to address the issues of aging populations.
