Health Innovators Fellowship Announces Its Fifth Class


21 senior health care leaders were chosen to join the Health Innovators Fellowship's fifth class and the program's network of health care entrepreneurs and innovators from across the US. Fellows from this class hail from all parts of the country and work across the health care ecosystem, with expertise ranging from mental health and medicine to health care technology and venture capital. They represent business, nonprofit, and government organizations. 

These leaders will embark on a two-year Fellowship that will strengthen their leadership and challenge them to broaden and deepen their impact as they work to improve the health and wellbeing of Americans. 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 October.
