Co-Creating A Healthy Future

The world has changed dramatically these past several years and yet, in the realm of health, individuals and families still face serious challenges. On March 9-10, 2017 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center we celebrated successes, examined failures, and most importantly, planned for the future. Always keeping individuals and families at the center, we enabled cross-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder teams to co-create a vision worth striving for as well as more concrete solutions. Our two days together were driven by the lived experience of attendees, macro trends in healthcare, and evidence-driven analysis of the needs that people face in pursuing healthy and happy lives. Thank you for bringing your talents to two-days of ideation and collaborative visioning to help transform health as we know it.
