Join us for an opportunity to hear about the achievements in the Kansas City regional life sciences industry and to network with nearly 500 civic and business leaders, researchers, educators, students, and clinicians. On Thursday, October 10, we will host our Annual Dinner at the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland.
The theme of this year’s dinner is “Data to Decisions”. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Jessilyn Dunn from Duke University, will present her research on integrating data from wearable devices, electronic health records, and genomics. While there has been limited integration to date between genetics information, wearable data and medical data to improve outcomes, their role in future healthcare is expected to grow. Dr. Dunn’s presentation “Big Data Applications for Improved Health Outcomes: Using wearables, EHR and -omics data for early detection, intervention, and prevention of disease,” will showcase her work in discovering effective and customized treatment plans tailored to individual patients.
