We’re really excited to be holding our 2nd Health Disruptors Blab chat on June 21, 2016 at 10 PM ET (7 PM PT). Yes, we realize this is late for many of you on the east coast, but that should make for some fun late night conversations. Most of the health disruptors I know send me emails at all hours of the day and night, so hopefully this time will work out for most. We’re continuing to evaluate the time and changing it as our schedules permit and as the community desires.

If you’re not familiar with the format and approach of the Health Disruptors blab, you can read more details here.

Melissa McCool (MindStile and STI Innovations) will be the host for this month’s Health Disruptors chat where we’ll talk about “Solving the Problems of the Upstream Determiners of Health.” To start the discussion, here’s the big overarching question we’d like to discuss along with some questions that dive a little deeper into the topic.

Big Question:

  • How can we solve the problem of the upstream determiners of health?

Diving Deeper:

  • What does this mean exactly?
  • Whose job is it?
  • What are some creative ways to address this issue?
  • If I had a magic wand, I would solve this problem by…
  • What is the role of tech?
  • Who and what companies are being most disruptive to healthcare?

If you’ve never used blab before, it’s really easy to use. You can watch and participate in the chat on blab itself or in the embed below. Just visit this blog post or the blab page on June 21, 2016 at 10 PM ET (7 PM PT) and you can join in on the conversation.

We’re planning to start off holding these monthly on the 3rd Tuesday of every month.

Also, feel free to use the #HealthDisruptors hashtag for things you learn or hear on the blab chat as well. Thanks in advance for those who spread the word about this new endeavor. We think it could grow into a really special community.
