About this Webinar

Join Sebastian Thrun and Dr. Toby Cosgrove and Kerrie Holley as they discuss the future of healthcare. There will be a fundamental shift from “health care” to “health.” And while disease will never be completely eliminated, through science, data, and technology, we will be able to identify it earlier, intervene proactively, and better understand its progression to help consumers more effectively and actively sustain their well-being.
