Eric Topol

About the Program

Eric Topol, director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute and cardiologist at the Scripps Clinic, contends that digital technology can make medical care more efficient and effective.  However, due to what the author argues is the medical community's resistance to change, technological advances have yet to be fully accepted. Mr. Topol presents his thoughts on how to re-imagine health care and the doctor-patient relationship at Kepler's Books in Menlo Park, California.
