From lab to bedside and beyond, medicine will look very different in the coming decades. What is the role of technology, data, and ethics in shaping the future of health care? Join us to inform prospective health care workers about what changes await them in care and delivery and to educate youth on the many career paths in the health sector.

 Agenda:

  • Welcome (5 mins)
  • Talks by our panelists, TBA (30-40 mins)
  • Our panelists answer YOUR questions! (45-55 mins)
  • Closing remarks (5 mins)

 

Meet the Panel 

Andrew Pelling – What you thought you knew about cellular biology is about to change – Andrew and his research team are pushing the limits of what cells can do. 

Muhammad Mamdani – As an expert in economics, public health and data science, Muhammad will show how data and artificial intelligence are revolutionizing health care. 

Molly Shoichet – Molly applies her background as a chemical engineer to health problems. She’ll talk about her research projects to deliver drugs effectively and regenerate tissues. 

Nicole Redvers – Nicole will tackle a big question: how can we bridge Indigenous knowledges and western medicine to improve health for all?  

Destina Mattrasingh will lead a provocative discussion with all the panelists, answering YOUR questions.  

Please see the registration page for complete bios. 

Engage yourself or your class with these resources on the future of medicine. Youth have the chance to win prizes by finding the answers to our scavenger hunt, which will be released by email 1 week before the symposium.
