It’s beyond question that we are living in a golden age of health care and medicine. Perhaps never before in human history has the maintenance of health and wellness — whether through prevention, diagnosis, delivery, treatment, rehabilitation or research — undergone such a state of radical transformation and advancement, with technology revolutionizing and even disrupting the health care industry and landscape like never before.

Mind-boggling achievements and advancements in health and medicine are profoundly altering the way we live our lives, and perhaps nowhere is this seismic transformation being felt more than in the Baltimore metropolitan area, with its wealth of world-class medical institutions, schools, centers and systems.

In recognition of this new era in health maintenance, Jmore devotes the following Special Section to exploring some of the innovations in health and wellness taking place in our midst. In addition, we invite you to join us on Oct. 29 for Jmore’s “JBiz Health Care Innovation Networking Event,” celebrating Baltimore’s health care innovators and trailblazers.

The event — a business-to-business networking event centered on the topic of innovation in the health care field — will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Cylburn Arboretum, at 4915 Greenspring Ave. It will feature a VIP cocktail hour for sponsors, panelists and their guests, followed by a moderated panel discussion led by George Nemphos of Nemphos Braue LLC.

The conversation will feature a panel of highly regarded local health care innovators, including Dr. Stacy D. Fisher, cardiologist and associate professor of medicine at the University of Maryland Medical System, Dr. Panagis Galiatsatos, co-founder and co-director of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center’s Medicine for the Greater Good, and Dr. Jonathan Thierman, chief medical director and chief medical information officer of LifeBridge Health’s virtual hospital.

Network with business, professional, health care and community leaders while enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres catered by Santoni’s. Kosher food and complimentary parking will be available. Join us!
