    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.

    Today, medicine is increasingly focused on quality of life. We look at the breakthroughs, innovative practices and new health care measures that will improve not just how long, but how well, you live.


    What to expect: Dr. Rudy Tanzi on the hunt for the genes behind Alzheimer's disease; Cindy Whitehead on the female Viagra; Dr. Martha Murray on a less-invasive ACL surgery; Dr. Eva Redei on a blood test for depression; Dr. Bob Bourge on the single device that is changing treatment for pulmonary hypertension; Dr. Vadim Backman on improving cancer detection methods


    *Special thanks to our hosts the Evening Associates of the Art Institute of Chicago
