Dr. Eric Topol to Appear on “The Doctors” TV Show + List of Upcoming Digital Health Events

Dear Digital Health group members,

I always love to see mainstream, consumer-focused media coverage of Digital Health, which is becoming ever more common these days. On Tue, Sep 4th, the popular TV program “The Doctors” will air an episode featuring Dr. Eric Topol, who will discuss his book, “The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care” and provide a device demonstration. A world-renowned cardiologist, Dr. Topol is Chief Academic Officer at Scripps Health, Director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute, Professor of Translational Genomics at The Scripps Research Institute, and Vice-Chairman at the West Health Institute.
