Andrea Watson will talk about her use of Virtual Reality (VR) technology to enhance her world travel experiences and to enjoy immersive experiences which she has delved into since her retirement.  

Andrea recently began exploring VR's therapeutic applications in pain management and cognitive wellness.  She believes VR and other similar technologies such as augmented reality, mixed reality and artificial intelligence (AI) are poised to dramatically impact medicine as well as how we live and age.

Andrea had a long career in Medical Technology.  She spent many years operating and maintaining complex medical instrumentation used in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases in a hospital setting.  She has experience in clinical trial data collection and management in the pharmaceutical industry. She holds a BS in Medical Technology, licensed by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
