Health Data and Personalised Medicine: How will you be treated?
Outside the Square
Location:The Old Rum Store, Chippendale
Nothing feels more personal than our health yet medical treatment is essentially a one-size-fits-all scenario. Despite our differences, when we get sick, we’re more or less treated with the same drugs.
But with the advent of precision medicine and advances in eHealth technology, this may be about to change. Very soon, treatment based on our individual genetic information and health histories will be readily available.
Some observers say these breakthroughs are not without risk and express legitimate concerns as the growing sophistication of our eHealth systems increases security vulnerabilities, and customised medicines remain out of financial reach for most individuals.
Join Professor Tim Shaw (eHealth) and our expert panel for this interactive event, to learn more about the incoming disruption and discover what medical treatment could mean for you in the very near future.
