Title: Precision Health: Stanford’s Vision for Healthy Aging

Speaker: Lloyd B. Minor, MD

Carl and Elizabeth Naumann Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine

Summary: Life expectancy in the U.S. has dropped for three consecutive years, and life expectancy at birth in Canada has stopped rising. Many factors contribute to this lack of progress, but one is the traditional reactive model of health care. Stanford Medicine’s Precision Health vision is ushering in proactive health care that will improve health and wellness throughout the life span by predicting, preventing, and curing disease–precisely.

Bio for Dr. Minor: With his leadership, Stanford Medicine has established a strategic vision to lead the biomedical revolution in Precision Health, a fundamental shift to more proactive and personalized health care that empowers people to lead healthy lives. Dr. Minor is also a professor of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery and a professor of Bioengineering and of Neurobiology, by courtesy, at Stanford University. With more than 140 published articles and chapters, Dr. Minor is an expert in balance and inner ear disorders. In 2012, he was elected to the National Academy of Medicine.
