    2019 Essay Question - Technology and Healthcare have experienced innovative breakthroughs over the past 10-20 years. Technological innovation has changed the way we communicate every day. Innovations in healthcare have changed the way doctors treat patients and disease. What is the next industry other than Technology and Healthcare that will see real innovative breakthroughs in the next 10 years? How will this solve real world problems and impact our everyday lives?
