SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bob Messerschmidt, CEO and founder of Cor, is among a select group of innovators scheduled to teach at this year's Stanford Medicine X on Sunday, September 18. Messerschmidt's masterclass titled, "The Transformation of Precision Health in the Home, and Crowdfunding," will explore the future of health as it relates to customization and personalization, and advancements made in managing personal health.
Messerschmidt's 90-minute course will cover the profound changes transpiring in the medical industry, specifically focusing on the shift from healthcare to health--a recent phenomenon in the health industry that stems from the idea of moving from a disease centered model to a patient centered model of care.

I'm looking forward to joining other educators and bringing engaging, valuable content to the bright minds who will one day innovate and continue our charge for better health and healthcare for all."
