One Giant Leap: Reflecting on the Moon Landing 50 Years Later
This week, celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing are in full swing and we here at StartUp Health are joining in the hoopla. Although, you could say we've been celebrating Apollo 11’s journey to the Moon since we launched in 2011. Each week, we take our cue from President John F. Kennedy’s original challenge – ‘we choose to go to the Moon’ – and celebrate the progress toward seemingly impossible goals. We do this by amplifying the stories of our global army of Health Transformers: entrepreneurs, inventors, and disruptors tackling the world's most difficult health challenges (what we call Health Moonshots) through the power of moonshot thinking.
In honor of the Moon landing’s 50th anniversary, we invite you to get acquainted with the moonshots defining the future of health and meet the Health Transformers working to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone on the planet.
