With stroke victims already controlling external robotic devices by thought alone (via implantable brain chips), the stranger is only going to get stranger.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
Popular keynote speaker, healthcare futurist, and best-selling author, Jack Uldrich has been selected to deliver the keynote address at the University of Southern California's Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy's annual meeting in Palm Springs, California on Friday, May 18th. He will be discussing short and long-term trends in biokinesiology, physical therapy and health care. In June, Uldrich be discussing key technological trends in health care with members of the hospital associations in Maryland (June 5th), Mississippi (June 8th) and Maine (June 22nd).
The presentations, based on Uldrich’s two new books: "Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow" and "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future" as well as his popular article, "Top Ten Trends in Healthcare," will begin by discussing how continued advances in information technologies, biotechnology, nanotechnology, robotics, radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, genomics, regenerative medicine and social networking will radically transform healthcare in the decade ahead. (A video of Mr. Uldrich discussing future trends can be viewed here.)
Uldrich will then focus on why these trends will demand unlearning and discuss why participants must embrace the concept of unlearning in order to achieve future success. Uldrich, who has been hailed as “America’s Chief Unlearning Officer,” will conclude by reviewing specific habits, customs, beliefs and ideas that healthcare professionals can—and must—unlearn. Throughout his talks, he will use vivid analogies and memorable stories, drawn from a wide spectrum of industries, to ensure his message of unlearning “sticks” with his audiences.
In the past year, Uldrich has addressed dozens of healthcare associations and hospitals, including the Alcetel-Lucent/Verizon Forum on Wireless Healthcare, Allina Hospitals, The Healthcare Trustees of New York, The Iowa Healthcare Collaborative, Care Providers of Minnesota, St. Jude Medical, Fairview Hospitals, University Hospitals & Health System of Ohio, and healthcare associations in Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota,Tennessee, Utah and Wisconsin. Uldrich has also addressed a number of major, non-health-care-related corporations on the topic of unlearning including United Healthcare, PepsiCo, Cisco, IBM, WiPro and General Electric.
