2016 Conference Overview

Make Change Possible: Thriving in an Ecosystem for Health

At Transform 2016 we will engage with the world’s top thinkers to boldly envision a sustainable future for health. We will address the dynamics of social, political, scientific, technological and economic sectors; explore how people make change happen; and examine how leadership, culture and collaboration make it possible.

We will investigate the future of a new ecosystem being created by individuals and organizations responding to real, and oftentimes personal, needs.

Join us to make change possible, be inspired and take action.

Wednesday, September 14 to Friday, September 16, 2016
