And Justice For All: Health Innovators Reveal What's Missing in Health Care
Remarkable advances in health care technology have extended lives and eradicated diseases. But with commerce driving most health care innovations, many patients have been left behind. How do we foster progress that benefits everyone and reduces widening health care disparities? In four short, provocative talks, Fellows will provide a rapid-fire look at health care justice from four vantage points: food, technology, physicians, and new care models. Expect a lively exchange of ideas showing how innovations in health care can—and must—be used to improve the health of all patients.
