Taking Control of Your Health in the New Era of Personalized Medicine

Thomas Goetz, Executive Editor, Wired

When it comes to our health, we’re often overwhelmed, scared and confused about how to mind it – so we don’t. Goetz offers a bold new vision of health care. He will explain how personalized medicine isn’t just about tailor-made drugs; it’s about our personal data. We now have the technology to track and collect this valuable personal information, leading us to possibly better, more informed health decisions.
