COVID-19's Silver Lining: Accelerating Personalised Health

Wed, May 20, 2020, 11:00 AM (BST)



Coronavirus changes what we consider normal.  We're thinking about personal health more than ever before.  However, not everyone is equal and our understanding of personal COVID-19 risks changes when new evidence emerges.  Longstanding barriers to innovation adoption have drastically reduced in response to Coronavirus. Join us on Wednesday 20 May at 11AM UK time to hear what this pandemic means to our personal health.  We're honoured to have a strong line up of speakers to discuss the topic, including:

• Charles Alessi: Senior Advisor to Public Health England and Chief Clinical Officer at HIMSS

• Tom Stubbs: CEO, Chronomics 

• Barnaby Poulton: UK Managing Director, Docly

• Joann Rhodes: Founder, Transres

• Jim Schofield: TopMD and H2020 programme Dragon lead

Can COVID-19 be a catalyst for precision health at a national level?  We'll discuss this topic and others, such as the following:

• Acute vs chronic health crises - Does COVID-19 push aside chronic health challenges or is it an amplifying lens for the greater health and longevity challenges?

• "Underlying health conditions" - Let’s unpack that phrase and what it means for COVID-19 morbidity and mortality.

• What is the latest understanding of the impact of COVID-19 on people with underlying conditions and the lasting effects on health post-infection?

• How can health tech help in risk stratification based on underlying health state / lifestyle risk, recovery using disease biomarkers, and resilience to future waves of infection?

Join us on 20 May to better understand your personal situation.
