Big data promises to revolutionize fields as diverse as national security, investing, weather and climate, organizational effectiveness, and, of course, public health and medical research. Simplifying, organizing and analyzing these immense pools of data can lead to new approaches in prevention, early detection and treatment of disease throughout the world--which would mean better health outcomes for all. This panel will explore how we get from here to there, addressing such questions as:

• What is the promise of big data for improving the world's health?
• How can big data--combined with consumer technology--help patients take charge of their own health?
• What are the barriers we need to overcome to take full advantage of big data's potential for health improvements?

Innovative new companies and investors have emerged as leaders in the food space.

• What are the breakthrough ideas that will transform the food system?
• Where are the best investment opportunities in the $18-trillion "seed to fork" food industry?
• As our health becomes more personalized, what are innovators doing to bring this trend to the food and nutrition space? Is analyzing our microbiomes the key to better nutrition?

One of the most important public health findings in the last two decades is that medical care is far from the only factor in how long people live and the quality of their health. A key step to improving health outcomes for older adults--and reducing the costs to the health-care system--is to better integrate health-care and supportive services with housing and transportation at local levels. This session explores effective methods and solutions that can drive change and result in healthier aging on a vast scale.

• How can we encourage more communities across the country to make the needs of their older residents a priority as they plan for the future?
• How do we improve the critical connections between housing, health care, technology, transportation, and urban planning?

Ever-evolving consumer preferences, groundbreaking technological advances and population growth are just a few of the driving forces shaping the food industry. The way we grow, market, sell and prepare food is changing day by day. Against this backdrop, both established food manufacturers and new innovative companies must anticipate and adapt to accelerating changes, many of which have a focus on healthy options and accessibility.

• How are the massive shifts in the industry impacting health?
• What role is technology playing as a tool or a toy in meeting demands?
• What trends can food companies anticipate so that they can emerge as leaders in tomorrow's market?
• How do brands that find national success stay true to their roots and communities?

At the forefront of the wellness revolution are women creating businesses, offering products and services that help consumers build a healthier lifestyle. They are both responding to and inspiring wellness habits to become more mainstream, with great potential to promote prevention and develop a lasting culture of health. Indeed, from the avalanche of fitness crazes to the appearance of meditation rooms in airports, the interest in wellness opportunities is growing as people seek to take more control over their physical and mental well-being than ever before.

• How has the wellness movement changed the way businesses engage consumers and the way employers engage their employees?
• How can we ensure access to resources for physical and mental wellness for all, regardless of socioeconomic status?
• Why are women at the forefront of the wellness revolution? What is their role in bringing the benefits of this movement to more individuals and communities around the world?
• What are some of the successes and challenges that the leaders of this revolution have faced?

In the United States, a mere 21.6 percent of children and adolescents (ages 6 to 19) get the recommended amount of physical activity each day. This is an alarmingly low rate, given that regular physical activity has been shown to help children grow into healthy adults. It can improve cardiorespiratory fitness, build strong bones and muscles, control weight, and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression and--equally important--lower the risk of developing serious health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer later in life. This panel will explore the ways physical activity can become an intrinsic part of childhood.

• What efforts are being made to encourage children to move more as part of their lifestyle? 
• How can children learn to make physical activity a habit for life? 
• What are the challenges that keep children from being active and what can be done to overcome them?

From Uber for transportation to Facebook for friends and now Amazon for food, it's clear that our lifestyles continue to center on hyper-connectivity. This session will dive into how new technological advances have begun a digital revolution in health and what we can expect to see in the future.

• When it comes to improving individual and community health, does technology help with access to care or does it create more of a divide?
• With huge numbers and confusing acronyms, health care is complex and often daunting for patients. Can technology simplify the health system and empower patients to better understand and take charge?
• What can we expect from the future of digital health? Into what areas of digital health is the most money being invested?

Chronic diseases are responsible for 85 percent of health spending in the United States. In this session, we'll discuss how we can stop health care from being a system that treats the sick to becoming one that promotes prevention and wellness.

• What can we gain, both in better outcomes and economic savings, from focusing on prevention and wellness for patients?
• What are the roles of nutrition, fitness, early detection and education in prioritizing prevention?
• How can current global health systems change in order to increase access and reimbursement of evidence-based prevention methods?
