The Healthy Business Coalition, a cross-sector collaborative initiative convened by BSR and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will host our next Sustainability Matters webinar featuring leading voices from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors on the next sustainability frontier of health and wellness.

This webinar, the third in the series, will showcase how businesses can apply a health lens to innovation and R&D processes. From healthier products to entire business lines focused on wellness, companies are innovating to participate in an attractive and emerging market. The conversation will highlight how companies can further integrate health into the design of new products, services, and programs that support positive health outcomes.

We will hear from companies on their approaches to:

  • Engaging a new network of health partners to foster innovation
  • Designing innovation processes that include health considerations
  • Aligning product development with customer-facing health and wellness goals

Speakers

  • Eric Eng, Design Team Lead, IBM Watson Health Design Team
  • Judi Manis, Regional Vice President—Business Development and Strategic Relations, Internet of Things—Healthcare, AT&T
  • Mark Cobain, Co-founder and Director, Younger Lives Community and Research
  • Siri Betts-Sonstegard, Design Researcher, IBM Watson Health Design Team
