    TALK - Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    Medical breakthroughs are revolutionizing the way health professionals are providing care, making more accurate diagnoses, and dispensing more beneficial advice. So why don’t patients like it? As a future of statistically improved care hurdles towards us, we’re convening today’s leading health thinkers and researchers to talk about the integral role played by human touch in a rapidly digitizing medical world, and parsing out the ways a patient’s journey remains the beating heart of health care.
