Serious Wonder has the opportunity to attend and cover FutureMed2020 this year. As describe on the site: FutureMed “educates, informs and prepares physicians, innovators, inventors, investors and senior healthcare executives to understand and recognize the opportunities and disruptive influences of exponentially growing technologies within medicine and healthcare, and to understand how many rapidly developing and converging fields affect the future of wellness, prevention, clinical practice and the biomedical industry”.
This event and the people involved are on a trajectory to build a future of health and abundance. I will be live tweeting and blogging during the 3 day conference. You can follow on Twitter @SeriousWonder, and if you have any questions or comments you would like me to relay, please feel free to email me at Kevin@SeriousWonder.com
