UC San Francisco: Ensuring Health Equity is Within Reach
September 17, 9:00 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Forum
*Open to full conference pass holders only

We are in the midst of an invisible health care epidemic, one in which thousands of people of color each year incur greater suffering and loss of life from illness than their white counterparts. Despite decades of work, advances in biomedical science and health care delivery to save lives and reduce suffering have not eliminated disparities in health outcomes related not only to race and ethnicity, but also gender, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation.

Using the same scientific rigor, collaborative work, and creative problem solving that allowed UCSF to tackle the AIDS epidemic, our scientists, educators, policy experts and clinicians are leading the way to address the health care injustice epidemic. UCSF is committed to identifying, studying and solving the root causes of this epidemic so that all who reside in this country receive high-quality care that leads to the best possible health outcomes.

Our panel will showcase current and future generations of UCSF faculty and physicians who have identified promising strategies to eliminate health disparities using education, biomedical science, public health, policy and other disciplines. Their commitment and groundbreaking work exemplifies UCSF’s commitment to its advancing health worldwide mission.

There is an urgent need to take advantage of our vast new understanding of human genetics and computer technology to improve health and make the practice of medicine more precise. Dr. Atul Butte's lab at UCSF focuses on building and applying computational tools to convert hundreds of trillions of points of molecular, clinical and epidemiological data collected by researchers worldwide, commonly known as “big data,” into new diagnostics, therapeutics and insights into both rare and common diseases. Dr. Butte, a computer scientist and pediatrician, will highlight how publicly-available molecular measurements to find new uses for drugs including drugs for inflammatory bowel disease and cancer, discovering new diagnostics for complications during pregnancy, and how the next generation of biotech companies might even start in your garage.
