The third Fortune Brainstorm HEALTH conference was held March 19-20, 2018 in Laguna Niguel, and convened a powerful new community of leaders at the forefront of the revolution that is underway in 21st century healthcare.

2018 speakers included Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini, Cleveland Clinic former CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation CEO Dr. Susan Desmond-Hellmann, Kevin Durant, Dana-Farber CEO Dr. Laurie Glimcher, Milken Institute Chair Michael Milken, Fitbit CEO James Park, Tony Robbins, Brigham and Women’s Hospital Global Ambassador Ann Romney, United Therapeutics CEO Dr. Martine Rothblatt, Accenture North America CEO Julie Sweet, Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard Tyson. They were joined by our co-chairs—Fortune Editor-in-Chief Clifton Leaf, Dr. David Agus, one of the world’s most influential physicians, and Thrive Global CEO Arianna Huffington.

Fortune Brainstorm Health, in association with IBM Watson Health, gathers not only C-suite leaders of top companies, hospitals, insurers, and cutting-edge pharma and biotech companies, but also titans of venture capital, tech and telecom, and other industries, all of who are rapidly changing the face of health care. Our aim is not only to push some boundaries in each of these areas, but also to show how businesses, both established and new, can lead the way.
