Twenty-five years is an important anniversary for any organization; it is a milestone of stability, a testament to perseverance. And yet, in this age of accelerating change, longevity does not guarantee relevance and perseverance is wasted without a commitment to grow and develop. That is why our 25th Anniversary Annual Conference celebrated the power and promise of innovation.
We live in an age in which innovation abounds. We experience its promise in the vast array of products that all of us use daily. It influences our travel, health, education, and even entertainment. And so it must be if we are to revolutionize translational research, information, and services.
Our determination to transform our health system is at once corporate, communal, and individual. We will succeed because we will marshal within our community the formidable intuition, creativity, and imagination that sustains true innovation.
Our 25th year is not about us—it is about you. We invite you to reflect on your own personal experience of innovation. Explore how it is that you are an innovator. What dreams do you have for bettering the systems around you? What are you willing to risk to bring your idea to fruition? At our Annual Conference, we recognized many among us who have made innovation an expression of their essential identities. You recognized the passion for innovation in our presenters and awardees and all of your colleagues.
Join us to explore innovation within you and beyond. Let’s celebrate and explore how we can and must transform healthcare together!
