JW Marriott
Room 203-204

Health is no longer a spectator sport. In the new world of health and medicine, you are the prime player in decoding, understanding and accessing your health and wellness. Open access to data will change the way we monitor and impact our personal health and the health of those around us. Sam De Brouwer, co-founder of Scanadu, a NASA Ames Research Center based company; Linda Avey, co-founder of 23andme and co-founder & CEO of Curious, Inc.; and Jessica Richman, co-founder and CEO of uBiome, will share their unique perspectives on democratizing health care and learning how to decode our bodies and potentially alter the future of our personal health. From understanding our genetic code to discovering what’s happening in our microbiome to having unparalleled access to our vitals, learn how the future of health is literally in our hands.
