Igniting Innovation: Health Innovators Fellows Reveal What No One Else Will


Summer in Aspen kicked off last month with "Spotlight Health", the opening segment of the annual Aspen Ideas Festival. The three-day health conference features an exceptional mix of inspiring and provocative experts who dive into topics of medicine and health. 

This year, Health Innovators Fellows revealed "What No One Else Will" in a series of "Ignite Talks". This session provided a rapid fire look at innovation from around the health care ecosystem – from delivery systems, to digital economies, to technology, to capital – provoking the audience to think differently about current approaches. What proceeded was a lively and meaningful exchange of ideas in the room.  

Check out this fun and provocative session below: 


The session is moderated by fellow Health Innovator Fellow, Margaret Lapiz. 

Featured Fellows and Topics: 

Dr. Sonia Angell - Technology as a Determinant of Health 

Ricardo Rivera-Cardona - Lessons Learned in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria 

Cathy Kenworthy - Attracting More Capital to U.S Healthcare 

Stacy Lindau - The Vaginal Muscle No One is Talking About 

As a primer to these talks, the Fellows hosted a Facebook Live interview previewing their Ignite topics. In the interview, they also discuss what values-based leadership in the health care space means to them. See the interview on the AGLN Facebook page here
