Fenwick & West TESLaw Lecture to Examine ‘Personalized Medicine’
Personalized medicine--the use of new technologies to tailor treatment to the unique genetic and molecular characteristics of individual patients--is revolutionizing health care. The 2010 Fenwick & West TESLaw will bring an impressive line-up of industry professionals and legal experts to King Hall to discuss personalized medicine and its implications for the health care industry, consumers, and the law.
The day-long event, to be held in King Hall's new Kalmanovitz Appellate Courtroom on November 5, will begin with a welcome address from Dean Kevin R. Johnson and Fenwick & West Partner David Bell at 9:30 am.
All King Hall alumni are invited to attend! (Your RSVP is appreciated.)
Kathryn Lowell, California Deputy Secretary for Life Sciences and Health Systems will deliver the keynote address at noon. Appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Business, Transportation, and Housing Agency Secretary Dale E. Bonner to develop policy and strategic initiatives to advance the California-based health and life science market, Lowell is the state's point person for health care information and technology policy. Prior to her current position, she was Vice President for Strategic Growth at Lumetra, a health care consulting firm, and Vice President of Maximus, a national IT and government services consulting firm.
