KJZZ and Rio Salado to Host AZ SciTech Forum

Imagine a medical treatment uniquely designed for your body. Science fiction or fact? Valley residents will have a chance to examine the potential of Personalized Medicine during an ARIZONA SCITECH forum presented by KJZZ and Rio Salado College from 7-9 p.m., March 8 at the Conference Center @ Rio.

The conversation will focus on the latest developments in custom treatments, followed by an examination of how this new medical model can affect your wellness and the Valley’s health and science-related industries.  

KJZZ’s Associate General Manager of News and Editorial Strategy, Mark Moran, will serve as the forum moderator. Joining Moran will be a panel of experts including TGen Clinical Professor Dr. Michael Demeure, TGen Researcher Dr. Darin Taverna, and Barry Broome, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council.

Attendees can help focus the dialogue by sending comments and questions in advance to KJZZ Public Insight Journalist, Nick Blumberg, at (480) 774-8231 or nblumberg@rioradio.org.
Space is limited; please contact Claire Kerrigan at (480) 774-8444 or ckerrigan@rioradio.org for reservations. The Conference Center @ Rio is located at 2323 W. 14th St., Tempe, AZ 85281.
