Saving Sight: Targeted Genome Sequencing for Early Diagnosis of Retinal Disease

Identifying disease-causing variants is essential to understanding the pathophysiology of, and developing treatment for, retinal diseases. Yet missing heritability and lack of disease haplotyping limits diagnostics as well as potential enrollment of patients afflicted with blinding retinal diseases in emerging clinical trials. Learn how Dr. Mustafi’s lab uses targeted long-read genome sequencing to provide early genetic diagnoses for these patients, allowing better avenues for treatment.

Thomas H. Gallagher, MD, MACP; UW Professor and Associate Chair, Department of Medicine; UW Professor, Department of Bioethics and Humanities; Executive Director, Collaborative for Accountability and Improvement

When Things Go Wrong in Healthcare: Responding with Transparency, Accountability and Learning

When patients have been harmed by their healthcare, we all strive to respond with empathy, transparency and accountability. Yet most healthcare organizations and clinicians struggle to turn these principles into practice, which increases the suffering of all involved. Dr. Gallagher has spent the last two decades conducting research on how to improve the response to harm in healthcare and leads national programs to help healthcare organizations close this gap. Hear about UW Medicine’s leading role in this important work and exciting new developments in this field.

Anne Browning, PhD, MA; Assistant Dean for Well-being, UW School of Medicine; Founding Director, UW Resilience Lab; UW Affiliate Assistant Professor, College of Education

Well-Being and Resilience: Navigating our Neurobiological Response in Times of Uncertainty

Dr. Browning will explore how the chronic and acute stress caused by the last several years has impacted our collective well-being. She will share how people can disrupt the neurobiological response to stress and threats by leveraging emotional intelligence. Learn what you can do to move through life with more intention and resilience.
