How will we treat diseases in the future? Today, many people have access to effective treatment for medical conditions. But as technology (and costs) rise, the potential for some people to lose access also increases. How can we ensure equitable distribution of new treatments? This café will focus on the equity and equality in the distribution of health services enabled by future technology.

Science Cafés are free, informal discussions that bring together members of the community and university faculty to discuss how science and technology can change the future.

Sponsored by ASU's Center for Nanotechnology in Society, the Arizona Science Center, and ASU's Project Humanities.
