Announcing The Fourth Class Of The Health Innovators Fellowship

21 highly successful health care leaders were selected to the 2018 Class of Health Innovators Fellows. They join a network of entrepreneurs and innovators from across the US health care ecosystem who are committed to strengthening their leadership and developing new approaches to improve the health and well-being of Americans. Fellows come from across the country and work in an array of health care industries – from medicine and health insurance to biotechnology and venture capital – and come from business, nonprofit, and government organizations.

The Health Innovators Fellows will spend four weeks over the course of two years exploring their leadership, core values, desired legacies, and vision for the health care system. All Fellows commit to launching a leadership venture that will stretch and challenge them and have a positive and lasting impact on health care in the US. Their first seminar will be in Aspen, CO, this September.
