UW’s Four Peaks TV: Dr. Lee Hood Speaks About Innovation
Episode: Wellness and Science Pioneer
Dr. Leroy Hood says we may not recognize our healthcare system a decade from now. Innovation will make it more predictive, personalized, preventative and participatory — his four Ps. And through Dr. Hood’s systems-based approach, we’ll be focused far more on “wellness” than on “care.” That’s just one reason why he was recognized by President Obama with one of the highest awards in the land: the National Medal of Science. And it’s also why Dr. Leroy Hood of the institute for systems biology joins our exclusive list: “The Innovators.”
