Innovation Digest – November 2020 Vol. 2

Especially this week, remember to be thankful for good health and for the front-line health care workers who are bravely caring for those who are sick. We have many challenges to overcome yet, most especially the fraying of the public’s trust in science and in expert sources of information that can keep us healthy. The innovation and dismantling of traditional silos in care emerging from 2020 holds possibility, if we can collectively move past short-term, win-lose policy and action. I’m grateful for fresh thinking and the promise of a new start in 2021.
