Dr. Jack McCallum, MD, PhD
Chairman/CEO IntegerHealth Technologies, LLC
7:00 am - 9:00 am
Dr. Jack McCallum is an experienced neurosurgeon with a PhD in History—and he’s also a healthcare technology entrepreneur, having founded two successful companies. Leveraging his expertise in neuroscience, history and technology, he has developed unique insights into the millennial brain, which he will share with us at the December meeting of Success North Dallas. Here’s a look at what he’ll cover at our December meeting:
- How Technology Impacts the Brain
Three historic developments in the way information is transmitted have changed how our brains work: writing, printing, and technology.
- The Shift from Knowledge to Information Access
Knowledge has traditionally been measured by how well one knows a subject. Now it is a function of whether one knows where to find information on a subject.
- How Millennials use Technology to Navigate the World
Through their devices, millennials deal with the world differently than prior generations.
- How will Changing Brains Change the World?
In the past, changes in information delivery took centuries to unfold, causing social and economic changes, and resulting in lost skills. What can we expect this time?
Whether you work with millennials, live with millennials, or you are a millennial, you won’t want to miss this educational and interesting presentation.
