General Imaging and Women’s Health  “Ultrasound”

My talk will focus on the many aspects of the digital landscape in Healthcare today. I have found this to be quite a disruptive topic and in my mid a topic well worth discussing.

Please note….my talk truly emphasizes how connected we are in all aspects of life…and how fast that connectedness is moving into Healthcare. However….my last slide truly speaks to how nice it can be to disconnect. It’s my wife feeding some deer when we were in the Scottish Highlands last year. And we were very disconnected from everything…no cell signals or internet….amazing time! Thought it would be a nice way to finish things off.
