The HealthQuake Summit to Explore Healthcare Landscape of the Future
Date:4/14/2008

DETROIT, April 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A unique global conference focusing on the future of healthcare will convene in Detroit June 8 - 10, 2009. The HealthQuake Summit will present an opportunity for leaders from around the world to gather and explore the ongoing and future seismic "tremors" in the healthcare industry in the areas of business, policy, and science/technology that will make the industry virtually unrecognizable in the coming years.

Featured speaker will be world-renowned surgeon Dr. Jean-Michel Dubernard of the Edouard Herriot Hospital in Lyon, France. Dr. Dubernard is associated with many medical firsts, including the first hand transplant (1998) and the first human face transplant (2005). Partnering agencies for the Summit include the Detroit Medical Center (dmc.org), the World Technology Network (wtn.net), the Institute for Alternative Futures (altfutures.com), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)/Science magazine (aaas.org).

According to Executive Producer/Director, James P. Clark, HealthQuake represents a truly unique opportunity as the one of the most crucial industries in the world adjusts to the ramifications of such seismic shifts as simplification; automation and robotics; postmodern medicine; globalization; the defeat of chronic disease, and longevity. "Healthcare over the course of the coming years of the early 21st Century will be nothing like it is today. The healthcare landscape will be unrecognizable one way or another," Clark said. "HealthQuake will help us all be prepared and show us how to best take advantage of the enormous changes already in process or soon to come."

The HealthQuake Summit will be held at the Detroit Marriott June 8 - 10, 2009. For more information, visit http://www.healthquake.org
