The Pope’s Health Moonshot
The setting was as surreal as the audience was eclectic. But that was part of the magic.
Last week StartUp Health was invited to join Pope Francis -- and celebrities like Katy Perry and Sanjay Gupta -- at the Unite to Cure conference held at the Vatican. During his address, the Pope stressed the importance of preventative health for marginalized populations and urged global collaboration in health innovation.
“It is urgent to foster everywhere a culture of prevention as the first step in health care,” said Pope Francis.
We couldn’t have been more honored to share this stage as StartUp Health’s Steven Krein and Howard Krein, MD, PhD, laid out the progress being made on our 10 Health Moonshots. We came away encouraged and renewed in our mission to help entrepreneurs transform health for billions of people.
We hope you’ll join us.
