Day Two of Health Tech ’15, was revelatory in two ways: It showed first hand the miracle of modern medicine and gave the 600+ attendees a true glimpse of how the intersection of science, technology, and healthcare were taking place in Westchester County. Perhaps the most dramatic moment of the conference, which was organized by the Westchester County Association, occurred when Doug Schreiber, a formerly paralyzed, 41-year old stroke victim with...
Dr. Kevin J. Tracey is on a mission. He wants to build a Center for Bioelectronic Medicine that he believes – and after seeing his PowerPoint and listening to his case histories, it is hard to refute – that bioelectronic medicine will lead to the successful treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, cancer, lupus, and other diseases that currently require large regimens of drugs.
We are deeply saddened at the passing of Al DelBello, our chairman emeritus and one of Westchester County’s greatest visionaries. Al saw what was possible and masterfully moved sometimes implacable forces in order to improve the quality of life for all those living and working here. He understood human nature and skillfully brought people along—not an easy task in what was often a contentious and boisterous political arena. Al was an astute observer and a careful listener; he was...
Completed over a decade ago, the $3 billion Human Genome Project gave the world a complete map of the entire genetic makeup of a human being. The Project started researchers on the path to genomic medicine—which reaches beyond the study of single genes to understanding how a person’s thousands of genes interact with each other and the genetic environment. Knowledge of a person’s genomic profile can help doctors make decisions about the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. With the cost of sequencing becoming affordable, individualized medicine may soon become routine. We asked Aris Baras, an international expert on the subject and a keynote speaker at Health Tech ’15, to tell us more about what genomic sequencing could mean for the future of healthcare.
The Westchester County Association’s first Health Tech conference in 2014 was a game-changer. For the first time, key players in health tech, biotech, med tech, venture capital, real estate, and healthcare were in the same room. The result? Westchester County is now one of the nation’s leading hubs of healthcare, health tech, and biotech innovation.
