Annual GoldLab Symposium Convenes to Ignite Discussions on Medical Research, Public Policy, and Lifestyle Advancements that Affect Health Care and Healthy Living
The seventh annual GoldLab Symposium, a unique and thought-provoking two-day conference that addresses the challenges, successes, and cutting-edge issues affecting health care and healthy living, convenes on the CU-Boulder campus, May 20-21, 2016. The symposium is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
This year’s symposium, “Standing Together—Health Care for Our Common Good,” includes topics on health care accessibility, human gene therapy, primary care in today’s world, drug research and development, the social behavior of bees, and the power of generosity. Presentations made by health care innovators, medical researchers, scientists, and thought leaders will be recorded and posted on the GoldLab Foundation website, following the close of the symposium.
“The GoldLab Symposium is rooted in deep discussions that inspire us to listen, learn, and engage in the overarching challenges of providing better health care and living healthy and satisfying lives,” said Larry Gold, Ph.D., professor at CU-Boulder and a bioscience industry pioneer. “This year, our symposium explores a wide range of topics that, when considered as a whole, affect the greater common good.”
