The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust Presents: The World Around Us

Setup

We’ve gone way beyond fitness trackers to collect information about our bodies’ physiological processes. Wearables are being designed to detect early signs of Crohn’s disease and other inflammatory diseases, identify signals of insulin resistance, and warn of blood pressure changes that could signal pregnancy complications. Some devices don’t even have to be attached to the body—they use remote sensors to gather data on sleep patterns, mobility, respiration, gait, and health-damaging environmental triggers, such as microbes and pollutants. This panel centers on the relationship between the invisible environment and health, the many ways we can track biological responses to a changing environment, and what we can do with this information.
