Innovation Digest – November 2018 vol. 2

I’m thankful for health care innovation that brings the promise of better treatment and potential cure, for scientists whose work helps all of us understand both breakthroughs and best ways to prevent disease and most of all for my own ability to access and engage in health care when my family or I need it. May we find a way to create common understanding of what we value in our health care and focus our energies on achieving that vision using every scientific, medical, social and payment resource available. It’s long overdue.
