“At ‘The Breakfast of Health Champions,’ attendees will be privy to a rare conversation between five leaders in healthcare,” said Jill Gilbert, producer of Digital Health Summit. . “By catalyzing these powerful and sometimes controversial conversations, the Summit inspires innovative business ideas and encourages new thinking for the whole industry. Outcomes can be game-changing when tough questions are asked of big thinkers.”
These inspiring leaders each represent a critical aspect of healthcare, from better nutrition and fitness tracking for health and wellness, to advances in cancer treatment and educating the entire population on how they can take charge in their own lives. This thought-provoking conversation will shine some light on how new technology will enable this progress.
Moderated by Jeff Arnold, CEO of Sharecare, the discussion will feature:

Jeff Arnold, CEO of Sharecare, inquires: “How will ‘personalized medicine’ change the way we treat disease? What’s stalling our ability to reduce the obesity epidemic? How can we inspire the next generation of health providers? These are a few of the tough questions we will be discussing with some of the most influential thought-leaders driving the future of health, each borrowing from their unique professional perspectives in this first-ever panel, ‘Breakfast of Health Champions.’ We are proud to debut this conversation series to urge ideas forward and excited to be a part of the Digital Health Summit at CES.”
