Innovation Digest – November 2022 Vol. 3

We hear often that a key to avoiding cynicism and despair is gratitude. In this week of thanksgiving, I’m grateful for the meaningful work I’ve engaged in over the last ten years leading Momentum Health Strategies. I’m also thankful for amazing colleagues, friends, family, and for the health and prosperity that we enjoy. I’m reminded by this week’s articles that the voice and lived experience of people must be our guide in health care, and that eliminating inequities in access, outcomes, and financial burden must be our goal.
