Tech Trends to Watch
Heather L. Evans, M.D., Fel. ’08, UW Associate Professor, Department of Surgery
Wearable computers, mobile apps, telemedicine — technology has brought us many new opportunities, but can they really improve the care we deliver to patients? Jump into the future as Dr. Evans gives an overview of the latest innovations in healthcare tech.

Targeting Aging: The Ultimate Preventative Medicine
Matthew Kaeberlein, Ph.D., UW Associate Professor, Department of Pathology
Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease and cancer all have something in common: your risk of developing them increases dramatically as you get older. In fact, age is the single greatest risk factor for all of these diseases and many others. Dr. Kaeberlein will give an overview of some recent advances in the science of aging and how this may affect the length and quality of life for people and their pets — sooner than you might think.

The Heart, Revealed
Kristen Patton, M.D., UW Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, and Stephen Seslar, M.D., Ph.D., UW Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Cardiology
What if you could practice procedures on a patient’s heart before the patient enters the OR? At UW Medicine, you can — with the use of 3D printers to create a heart that mimics that of the patient. This new technology allows patient-specific simulation to aid surgeons in planning complex cardiac procedures, and it’s a great tool for training future subspecialists in cardiac rhythms.

How 140 Characters Are Changing Healthcare
Wendy Sue Swanson, M.D., Res. ’06, UW Clinical Instructor, Department of Pediatrics
Digital tools are changing medicine forever, and improved communication is the future of smarter healthcare. While widespread social media and evolving online networks change access to information for patients and their families, they also dramatically shift physician and provider responsibilities. Today, more than ever before, clinicians must problem-solve with patients as partners and share expertise. Dr. Swanson will speak to how new technologies, wed with patient involvement, are disrupting — and benefiting — the health community.
