On January 25 – 26, President Clinton and Chelsea Clinton will host the Clinton Foundation's fourth annual Health Matters Activation Summit, which each year brings together leaders from a variety of health fields to identify strategies for systemic health improvement and ways to implement those strategies.
This year’s Summit convenes innovators from healthcare, public policy, business, education, and sports industries. The Summit will be held in Indian Wells, California, in conjunction with the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation PGA TOUR event on January 20 – 25 in La Quinta, and the final event in the Clinton Foundation’s Women’s Health Codeathon series from January 16 – 18 in Los Angeles. Tenet Healthcare Corporation is a title sponsor for this event.
The Health Matters Activation Summit is the embodiment of the continued work of the Clinton Health Matters Initiative (CHMI) throughout the year to improve the health and well-being of all people throughout the United States. CHMI, an initiative of the Clinton Foundation, activates individuals, communities, and organizations to make meaningful contributions to the health of others. Through work in local communities and programs dedicated to improving the health of everyday Americans, Health Matters positively impacts 75 million lives.
CHMI builds strategic partnerships to implement evidence-based systems and environmental and investment strategies, with the goals of ultimately reducing the prevalence of preventable diseases, reducing healthcare costs associated with preventable diseases, and reducing health disparity and inequity gaps. CHMI builds scalable solutions to address the drivers of health and wellness, serves as a catalyst for community health transformation by convening local partners and commitment-makers, and leverages digital platforms to innovate and disseminate best practices.
