Everything is changing. And now there’s a chance it’s changing for the better.
Medicine is always improving at a breakneck pace. Breakthroughs such as immunotherapy and genetics are changing the way we treat cancer. New drugs are being approved at an unprecedented rate. Artificial intelligence and deep learning, until recently just science fiction, are actually starting to make a real difference in public health. The big question now: How can we take this kindling and set it ablaze?
That will be our goal this year at the Forbes Healthcare Summit. For six years, Forbes has gathered medicine’s most powerful CEOs, its most thoughtful policymakers, and its most brilliant scientists to try and take on healthcare’s toughest problems. Previous guests have included Merck’s Kenneth Frazier, CMS head Seema Verma, the executives spearheading the revolution in gene therapy, and billionaires from biotech (Regeneron’s outspoken Len Schleifer) and drugstores (Walgreen’s Stefano Pessina).
The 2018 Forbes Healthcare Summit will again gather healthcare’s most powerful people for candid and open discussion, tackling controversial issues head-on. Our goal: to turn healthcare’s challenges into new opportunities.
