The Drive Toward More Non-Invasive Treatments for Patients

Monday, May 1, 2023
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM PDT
Beverly Hilton - Wilshire Ballroom

Non-invasive medical treatments are highly desirable alternatives and supplements to traditional surgery, radiation, drug delivery, and immune therapy, with some having proven safety, efficacy, and effectiveness. They hold the promise of saving time and lives with lower costs and fewer side effects. However, everyday millions of people suffer from conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, epilepsy, stroke, and cancer that prevent them from living full and whole lives. What has been the progress to date in the application of non-invasive medical treatments? How can we raise awareness, accelerate clinical trials, grow human and financial capital, and foster collaboration to advance these treatments? What is the future for these treatments? In this session, innovators and disruptors in the development and use of non-invasive medical treatments will discuss these topics, elevating the promise for new standards of care to benefit patients.
