We Choose to Go to the Moon: 2019 StartUp Health Festival Highlight Reel

The day after our annual StartUp Health Festival is the day when this community’s afterglow shines brightest. We’ve all felt it. That buzzing inspiration that washes over you after a dedicated time of connecting with like-minded changemakers, all pondering the future, rethinking the impossible. Batteries charged.

Whether you attended the 2019 StartUp Health Festival in person the last two days, tuned in via livestream, or simply caught wind of the excitement over the social media air waves, we ask that you to hold on to that afterglow. Before the week, the month, the quarter, or the year gets away, remember the Health Moonshots that we re-committed ourselves to this week. Remember the words of StartUp Health’s Unity Stoakes when he said, "It's about us being together. It's about building relationships. ...It's the electrifying energy that comes out of this Festival."

Recap: Day 1 & Day 2
