2022 Aspen Ideas: Health Fellows

The Aspen Ideas: Health Fellows are a diverse group of health leaders who are selected for their work, accomplishments, and ability to transform ideas into action.

  • June 6th 2022

The 2022 Aspen Ideas: Health Fellows are a group of leaders from more than 25 states in the United States and five other countries who were selected for their accomplishments and ability to transform ideas into action. They were nominated by Aspen Ideas: Health advisors, former Fellows, and others with knowledge, expertise, and experience across the health and healthcare spectrum. Their participation is made possible through the contributions of individuals, organizations, and Aspen Ideas Festival Patron passholders whose support directly funds the Fellows program. Aspen Ideas: Health is proud to honor and host these rising stars and is most grateful to all those whose donations have made this extraordinary opportunity possible.
