    Same for education and social work and law enforcement.

    The people professions. Hard work, decent pay, but lots of stress and overwork.
    Healthcare will always be there - as long as there is money. I expect the hiring trend there will die not long after the AHCA is passed.

    Maybe not robot doctors but self-monitoring systems that one plugs into with one RN/MD or paramedics monitoring a whole series of self-care programs. As people learn more, they take greater responsibility for their healthcare except in acute situations.

    I've seen talks at conferences by Eric Topol, an expert and author on the subject of technology in medicine. Fascinating stuff. Here's a TED talk:

    Finally got a chance to walk this talk. While really interesting, I am curious how much further along technology has come in the seven years since his presentation here.
    As some of the comments posted, will more info change results unless the patients change their behavioural choices? Any recent presentations as part of your work exposure that has addressed this question, Catherine?
