Dr. William Li addressed an audience of leaders spanning science, medicine, faith, and philanthropy at Unite to Cure: The Fourth International Vatican Conference – How Science, Technology, and 21st Century Medicine Will Impact Culture and Society, hosted by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture, Cura Foundation, Stem for Life Foundation and STOQ (Science, Theology and the Ontological Quest) Foundation.
“It was thrilling to be a part of this historic event that brought together global influencers united to discuss emerging advances to cure and prevent disease,” said Dr. William Li. “It was unanimous among medical leaders we must emphasize prevention as the foundation for global health and integrate our collective efforts to help reduce human suffering.”
“How our diet and environments impact our health is a largely uncharted frontier,” said Dr. Li. “As we explore, this collaboration will yield a vast array of lifesaving and life-extending knowledge using modern medical science and public health tools.”
Addressing the leaders gathered at the Vatican, Dr. Li focused on the opportunities to better understand how the human body resists disease. He called for a shift from a reactive disease-focused approach to a proactive health-centric approach for tackling our world’s health challenges.
