On Sunday, January 24, and Monday, January 25, President Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton will host the Clinton Health Matters Initiative’s (CHMI) fifth annual Activation Summit, a yearly convening of leaders from a variety of health fields to identify strategies for systemic health improvement and ways to implement those strategies.
Key themes at this year’s Summit will include communities as centers of health innovation, the quest for longevity and healthy aging, health-tech innovation, and addressing health disparities through entrepreneurship. The Summit will bring together leaders working in healthcare, technology, business, education, sports, and government. The event will follow the CareerBuilder Challenge, a PGA TOUR event held January 21 – 24 in La Quinta, CA, in partnership with the Clinton Foundation.
Tenet Healthcare Corporation is returning for the fifth year as a title sponsor for the Summit, which is the anchor to the continued work of CHMI throughout the year to improve the health and well-being of all people across the country. Highlights from past Health Matters Activation Summits include:
• An ESPN Town Hall which included President Clinton and Kobe Bryant discussing key strategies to improve access to sports and physical activity.
• The announcement of an agreement with the Kaleo pharmaceutical company to make EVZIO (naloxone HCl injection) Auto-injector, an emergency treatment for opioid overdose, available at a bulk discount to colleges and universities, public safety organizations and community organizers.
• The launch and culmination of an 800 Calorie Challenge, a national cooking competition that focused on healthy eating and nutrition, in partnership with the Palisades Media Ventures and the James Beard Foundation.
• A Town Hall with Spike TV to bring a focus on veterans’ health and wellness through Spike’s Veterans Operation Wellness (VOW) campaign.
• The release of the Project Play Report from Nike which encapsulates best practices for the design and delivery of quality, accessible youth physical activity programs.
CHMI brings together individuals, communities, and organizations to make meaningful, collective contributions to the health of others by working to reduce the prevalence of preventable health outcomes, close healthy inequity and disparity gaps, and reduce health care costs by improving access to key contributors to health of all people. CHMI’s year round work includes building strategic partnerships that will help facilitate the development and scaling of health-promoting solutions; working across sectors to develop and implement coordinated, systemic approaches to creating healthier communities; and leveraging technology and digital innovation to help advance health and wellness at the national and community levels by disseminating evidence-based individual, systems, and investment strategies.
