SUMMARY

Michael Birt, director of the Center for Sustainable Health at the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University.

In Birt’s address, “Sustaining Health: How Do We Prevent and Detect Disease Early Enough to Keep People Healthy … at a Cost We Can Afford?” he calls  for a shift in our health system to reward cost-effective prevention, early detection and intervention. Such a shift and the technology that it would require has the potential to spur growth among bioscience organizations, reduce patient suffering, and lowering health care costs.
