Breakthrough Medicine:
Booting-Up 21st Century Healthcare

A Virtual Intelligence Session
Thursday, July 30, 2020
2:30-4:30pm PT • 5:30-7:30pm ET

Not just a pandemic, COVID-19 has turned a magnifying glass on weaknesses in existing medical systems and diagnostics, and on the significance of underlying conditions in overall health outcomes. At this month’s FiReSide, we talk with two of the world’s top health pioneers on how genetics is changing everything, the future of medicine, and the promises these new paradigms portend for our current struggle with accuracy in diagnoses and treatments.

Join SNS for FiReSide, an evening of advanced insight about the road ahead to inform your personal and professional decision making.
