Scienta Health Series

Healthcare, the largest and, arguably, single most important sector in our economy and society, is enormously complex and multi-faceted. Unfortunately, far too much of the critical debate about the future of healthcare is, at best, ill-informed.

We at Scienta Health have decided to do our part to help inform this debate – hence the genesis of The Scienta Health Series. During 2010-2011, Scienta Health will host four private lectures by world-renowned experts in medical teaching, practice, research and healthcare delivery to share their insights and stimulate discussion.

Our intention is to invite world-renowned experts in medical practice, research and healthcare delivery to share insights. We will seek varying points of view and may not agree with all, but believe they should be aired. The Series focuses on what leading practitioners are thinking and doing today and on the impact of their innovations, many of which will surprise as they rapidly gain impact in diagnosis and treatment of debilitating and deadly diseases.
