The Future of Health

How we can better seize the opportunities presented by the emerging technologies of today and tomorrow to reengineer our health system with compassion, common sense and ethical clarity?

To answer this question and a few more, we reunited with leaders from the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at UB and the Jacobs Institute. This 11 topic report presents some dire statistics, but leads with optimistic takes about the treatments for cancer, the use of AI to improve patient care, increasing “healthspan,” and neuro-connected bionic prosthetics.
