I'm Dr. Bertalan Mesko, The Medical FuturistSM, keynote speaker, geek physician, and Amazon Top 100 author. I dedicate my life to finding the latest advances in health technology and understanding how these trends are shaping the present and future of medicine.
More than 3 million patients, doctors, regulators, pharma and other stakeholders of healthcare have joined me as I discuss how artificial intelligence will help us live better, how exoskeletons are changing the lives of the handicapped, how researchers are thwarting cancer, and where the future of medicine is heading.
As a healthcare speaker with over 500 presentations to top pharma and insurance executives, patient groups and doctors worldwide, my goal is informing strategies, practices and lives to help make healthcare sustainable, patient centered and digital.
An important part of this is helping you all live better and prevent disease – I have personally spent a decade optimizing my lifestyle with the help of health trackers, and regularly share what I learned.
