23andMe to Keynote Healthcare Solutions Summit

Personal genetics company 23andMe will keynote the 2016 Utah Healthcare Solutions Summit, offering a glimpse at the possible ripple effects personal genetic testing will have across the entire health and wellness delivery system.

Healthcare-180x250Scott Matthews leads 23andMe’s wellness program efforts, and he will tackle questions like how consumers, armed with their own genetic information, may become more engaged in their health or motivated to change their behavior. What healthcare solutions will these genetically informed consumers demand? How do we navigate the risks and challenges of this growing trend?

The Summit, to be held on September 13 at The Grand America, will explore the massive changes going on in our healthcare industry, from personalized genetics and treatments to re-aligning physician incentives.

The summit will also include the annual Utah Business Healthcare Heroes Award Luncheon, celebrating excellence and innovation within the healthcare system. The honorees include physicians who go the extra mile, administrators who’ve helped transform their organizations, compassionate volunteers and others who have made a meaningful impact on healthcare in Utah.
