The Future of Health: Dean Kamen
Town Hall is pleased to announce a new series, "The Future of Health,"
and to kick it off with well-known entrepreneur and inventor Dean
Kamen. Perhaps most famous for the invention of the Segway, Kamen
has turned his attention to the world's water supply. An estimated
1.1 billion people in the world don't have access to clean drinking
water and 1.6 billion don't have electricity. To solve the problem,
Kamen has invented two devices, each about the size of a washing
machine, which can provide much-needed clean water and power in the
third world. These are technologies that can be distributed by local
village entrepreneurs. Town Hall's "Future of Health" series will
explore a wide-range of emerging health issues from global policy to
personal health to alternative practices and continues on February
28 with James McManus talking about stem cell research. Tickets are
$5 at the door only. Town Hall members receive priority seating.
