HUB Presents: Faneuil Forum with Michael Sandel, 6–8PM

Moderated by: Robin Young, co-host of Here&Now

Is it just to tax the rich to help the poor? Should rich countries have the right to restrict immigration?

Synaptic Gap: 21st Century Brain Science Meets Mental Health Policy, 7:30–4:30PM

Moderated By: Carey Goldberg, host of CommonHealth

Join clinicians, researchers, policy makers, advocates, business leaders and elected officials as we work together to translate advances in brain science to individual patient care and treatment policy, find new ways to meet demand through non-traditional approaches to care in an environment of cost accountability, take a critical look at the economics of mental health, and promote resilience and hope at this this day of interactive summits and panel discussions.

Hosted by Massachusetts General Hospital.

Storytelling And The Future Of Medicine, 6–7:30PM

Moderated By: Rachel Zimmerman, reporter, CommonHealth

As medicine becomes increasingly dependent on technology, patients have fewer opportunities to tell their stories and similarly, clinicians are less likely to hear their stories. How can narrative medicine restore the story-telling connection to the practice of health care, and what can be done to promote better communication between patients and their clinicians? Join us as we discuss these issues at a program featuring Annie Brewster, MD, founder of Health Story Collaborative and Mass General Hospital internist, Suzanne Koven, MD, writer-in-residence for the Division of General Internal Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Jonathan Adler, PhD, narrative psychologist at Olin College.

Hosted by Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School Arts and Humanities Initiative.

Hub Presents: The Hype And Promise Of Blockchain , 2–6PM

Moderated By: Tom Ashbrook, host of On Point

Blockchain technology is arguably the most promising, and most hyped, emerging technology. It has the potential to fundamentally disrupt a significant number of industries and change the way that society works — from the way we vote and pay for services to how music and other goods are distributed.

Should you believe all the hype? What effects might blockchain have on you and your neighbors? This event will feature demos, discussions, and a roundtable seeking to demystify a seemingly esoteric, complex concept and make it real and tangible. In addition, technical deep-dive sessions will be offered as part of the programming for interested attendees.

Hosted by HUBweek in partnership with Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Sponsored by IBM.
