Medical Research & Innovation’s Impacts on Your Future Health
Part of the Family Health Seminar Series
A three part series of evening seminars/dialogues with Connecticut Children’s experts, focusing on the latest medical breakthroughs relative to children and family health
Science and technology have had a major impact on society by drastically changing our means of communications, the way we work, our housing, clothes and food, our methods of transportation, and the length and quality of life. In the medical world, we are seeing rapid progress in innovation.
Stem cells, once considered “science fiction,” are now being given to treat certain diseases. Building an organ in a dish, such as a lung, is done in laboratories across the country. Delivering care remotely through computers has had a direct impact on quality of life.
What do these advances mean for life in the future? Join us to hear about some of the breakthrough scientific technologies in pediatrics and form your own opinion on how this will change our world.
