Moonshot Progress: Children’s Health

There’s no question about it – we love our children. So how can we accept that every year more than 1.4 million children under five die of preventable environmental hazards like air pollution, hazardous chemicals, inadequate water, sanitation, and hygiene? We need a bigger vision when it comes to imagining a world where every child has equal access to a healthy environment in order to grow and thrive. At StartUp Health our global army of Health Transformers won’t accept anything less. They’re working to ensure every child has access to quality healthcare under our global Children’s Health Moonshot.

This week, we spotlight Hesky Kutscher, CEO of CareDox, and other Health Transformers from our Children’s Health Moonshot:

Health Transformer Spotlight: Hesky Kutscher, CareDox

Are Schools a Part of the Healthcare System?

Hesky believes they are. By making public schools the center of care for millions of children, the father of three and CEO of CareDox has opened up healthcare access to low-income communities, administering just under one million vaccinations. At the StartUp Health Festival, the entrepreneur shared the stage with Robin Deterding from Children’s Hospital Colorado to talk about their new collaboration that will scale the hospital's in-school asthma management program.
