SWHR’s 26th Annual Gala: “Revolutionizing Healthcare & Research Through Data”

The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR®) will host its 26th annual gala on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C.

This year’s signature event, “Revolutionizing Healthcare & Research Through Data,” will explore big data’s impact on the future of health, science, and medicine.

Data initiatives are revolutionizing healthcare and helping to improve every aspect of medicine, from bench to bedside. This data, which is being collected and utilized by healthcare providers, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, insurance companies, hospitals, and researchers, provides a wealth of healthcare information that can be used to better inform healthcare decisions and delivery for every woman.

Extensive advances in data generation and collection are changing the way we visit and interact with healthcare providers. Even on an individual level, people are collecting their personal health data through “wearables” that monitor weight, diet, exercise, heart and metabolic rates, sleep, and more.

Join us as we discuss how the healthcare community can move beyond conversation to an era of personalized care.

Keynote speakers Alyson J. McGregor, MD, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at Brown University and David C. Page, MD, Director of the Whitehead Institute and Professor of Biology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Investigator at Howard Hughes Medical Institute will lead the conversation on how data is advancing health and medicine.

The evening also will feature a panel discussion moderated by Kevita Patel, MD, Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution. Panelists include Philip E. Bourne, PhD, Associate Director for Data Science at the NIH; Robert M. Califf, MD, FDA Commissioner; Anna McCollister-Slipp, Co-founder of Galileo Analytics; and Jane L. Snowdon, PhD, Director, Watson Health Partnerships, IBM.

Additionally, SWHR will host a symposium May 5, 2016, examining opportunities and challenges that currently exist in using big data to improve clinical care delivery and development, in order to advance the health and safety for all women.

All event proceeds will benefit SWHR’s science, advocacy and educational programs, which ensure that women’s health remains a national priority.

Media are invited to attend the gala. To request a complimentary seat, email your name and news organization to communications(at)swhr(dot)org.
