So technology is a crutch…you got a problem with that? (Ali Ansary)
Science Kit for Ali Ansary
Thank you for requesting my Science Kit!
My goal as a medical student and future healthcare practitioner is to prepare for healthcare in the 21st century and provide the best care inside and outside of the clinic.
One way has been by addressing the disparities that exist in young people with cancer through an organization I helped co-found called SeventyK. SeventyK represents the number of young people diagnosed with cancer in the US alone. We are constantly working to try novel strategies to reach young people and improve cancer outcomes and survivorship. (www.seventyk.org)
The gist of my talk was that we’ve become used to seeing next-generation technology arriving every day.
New preventive innovations will take traditional technology into behavioral applications. Imagine subdermal drug delivery devices communicating with cells that have their own IP address. Tomorrow’s most exciting medical technology will not be about treating disease; it will be about maintaining health. We are beginning to live in a society where a patient’s health care is no longer bound by the walls of a clinic. New technologies will help patients “do no harm” to themselves.
