i’m facilitating an unconference session at SXSH as part of their innovation/government/wellness track.
both SXSH and cohealth believe the various constituencies involved in improving health need to work more closely together. with our track, we’ll bring employers, innovators, payers, pharmas and more into the room to enrich our discussion. as we always do with the #co_health chat, participants will decide the topic.

i’m excited to attend health 2.0 san francisco (SF) this year, since last year i monitored it from the twitter sidelines. health 2.0 SF offers a great lineup from “the worlds of technology, health plans, providers, pharma, government, health plans, finance and more” to see demos, discuss the latest changes in health care and investigate new health care technology startups.
this year they’re also offering an employers 2.0 preconference workshop that focuses exclusively on those issues unique to employers: health care, health care reform, workplace wellness, benefits enrollment and onsite medical clinics. all main conference attendees get free admission to this workshop.
i’m moderating the following panels, joined by such companies as clif bar, tesla, pfizer, limeade, keas, shapeup, kairos labs and zamzee:
- opening segment: the role of employers in a post-reform world (employers 2.0)
- workplace wellness (employers 2.0)
- game on: massively multi-player approaches to healthy behavior change (main conference, day one)
it’s a busy but fun and stimulating month. there’s still time to register and attend. but if you can’t, use the twitter hashtags to follow along.
