The Health 2.0 Conference is a premier forum where the most talented healthcare and wellness-focused professionals worldwide will gather to discuss ways to improve upon and expand the global healthcare ecosystem. Aiming to broaden and redesign the healthcare landscape, attendees will emphasize the latest advancements in healthcare and wellness and exchange creative ideas that challenge current healthcare standards and advance positive industry change that enhances people’s quality of life. 

How did Health 2.0 begin?

When the pandemic shook the world, it became evident that there was a need to advance a re-envisioned healthcare initiative for pharma, healthcare, medical devices and biotech in digital health, patient safety, drug and vaccine development, hospital management, AI in healthcare and more. This opportunity grew from the idea to gather together the world’s most notable healthcare professionals to initiate change and improve people’s health and overall quality of life.

Who do the awards recognize?

The Health 2.0 Conference awards will honor healthcare professionals, policymakers, CEOs, innovators and visionaries across numerous specialties who have directed change and contributed to improvements in healthcare. By recognizing these individuals, Health 2.0 accentuates their essential work and motivates others to inspire change.
