A panel discussion on the future of health care will take place at UB on November 29th, featuring experts from both local and national levels. The event is free and open to the public, and will take place from 3-5 p.m. in the M&T Auditorium in the Jacobs School, with a networking reception following from 5-6:30 p.m.
The discussion will focus on topics addressed in the recent “Future of Health” report, a joint release by the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at UB and the Jacobs Institute. The report not only highlights systemic challenges in the healthcare system but also emphasizes significant advancements and opportunities that have the potential to revolutionize healthcare. This is a follow-up to the 2017 “The Future of Medicine” report which predicted disruptive changes in the healthcare landscape due to emerging technologies and social movements.
Moderating the panel will be Allison Brashear, vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School, and Adnan Siddiqui, CEO and CMO of the Jacobs Institute and vice chair and professor of neurosurgery in the Jacobs School. Other panelists include Ethan Watters and David E. Duncan, senior and executive editors of the Future of Health Report respectively. Diana Aga, director of UB’s RENEW Institute; Nancy Nielsen, senior associate dean for health policy in
