A Disruptive Women in Health Care Roundtable: Tackling Brain Health
Women. We bring home the bacon and freeze our eggs. We learn from an early age how to multi-task (in heels while walking backwards—you have to be of a certain age to get that one). We take care of things, and people. That’s what we do. But what happens to us, to our brains, as we are busy taking care of everyone and everything? Women are twice as likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s as men, making up two thirds of the 5.4 million people in the United States slowly dying with the disease; and women are two thirds of the caregivers. Once women reach 65, they have twice the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s than breast cancer. The burden multiplies when you consider caregivers. They frequently put their careers on hold and drain their own savings to provide care. One in five switches to part-time work, sacrificing hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost wages and benefits. Brain disease goes far beyond Alzheimer’s of course. There are so many women who are on the bleeding edge of this work—in the labs and in the think tanks, in the trenches and in our homes. Come meet the brains behind numerous innovative advances in the study of brain health. Learn about provocative new technologies and bold solutions as our panelists unabashedly share how they are tackling the hard stuff. They’ve got the chutzpah, the moxie, and the smarts to power through the status quo. Join us for a memorable conversation.
Robin Strongin, Founder of Disruptive Women in Health Care, will moderate this roundtable.

Entrepreneurship in Bridging Evidence, Policy and Practice: A Conversation
Hynes Convention Center-- Room 313, 900 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02115
AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM)
June 27, 2016, 9:45 – 11:15 am
Hynes Convention Center– Room 313
900 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02115
Link to the overall ARM Conference: http://arm.academyhealth.org/home?navItemNumber=529
While the role of policy entrepreneurs who introduce and help implement new ideas into public practice from outside formal government positions has long been recognized, one variant of these individuals, the research translation entrepreneur, has received less attention. In health and health care, where using evidence to inform decision-making has proven particularly challenging, these entrepreneurs pursue innovative approaches to infusing healthcare and health policymaking with good science.
Four individuals who have creatively applied entrepreneurial skills to inform health policy and practice with evidence will reflect on their experiences. The first half of the 90 minute session will be a moderated discussion exploring these entrepreneurs’ motivations, the resources they marshaled to realize success, the allies they recruited, the extent to which they broke explicit or implicit rules, and any missteps and challenges they faced. The second half of the session will be devoted to questions from and discussion with the audience.
Learning objectives for CME application:
- Define the role of the entrepreneur in health services research translation and dissemination.
- Apply entrepreneurial strategy and tactics to informing health policy and practice with evidence.
- Identify the limitations of entrepreneurial approaches to research translation and dissemination.

2016 Health Datapalooza
The Grand Hyatt DC | Washington, DC
The Health Datapalooza was born of the data liberation movement and quickly became the signature event for the community. As data has become increasingly available and accessible, the focus of the conference has naturally progressed from “freeing the data” to also using the data, and the community has shifted from imagining the future to the hard work of creating successful approaches for using data to improve health and health care. This shift will be reflected in the content and structure of the 2016 Health Datapalooza.
The 2016 Health Datapalooza welcomes a year of powerful firsts, it will be the first year the event will be hosted by AcademyHealth and the first-ever Patients-Included certification for the event. The event builds on AcademyHealth’s efforts to explore the practical approaches to convening, user-centered design, innovation, and dissemination while accentuating work that advances understanding of the health system and improves health care quality and outcomes.
From pay equity to research equity to caregiving equity to health equity, the voice of women in health care discussions is often set aside until the data speaks up, sometimes decades later. Let’s join together at Health Datapalooza 2016 to give that data a microphone!
The Disruptive Women Co-Sponsor rates are $595 for onsite and $395 for webcast participation.
Visit the registration page: [link to: http://healthdatapalooza.org/registration-4/].
Use code “CO-SPONSOR” to receive your discounted registration by inserting it in the peach box at the bottom of the registration details page.
We look forward to celebrating with you at the 2016 Health Datapalooza, happening May 8-11, at The Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC.
Women of Impact for Health Care
Emmi Solutions | 300 West Adams Street | Chicago
Thank you to our generous sponsor, Emmi Solutions.
Perhaps it’s our American warehouse-club mentality, but we often emphasize quantity over quality in health care. Sometimes patients don’t feel as though they have been fully treated unless their doctor issues every possible test and treatment. But these decisions can play an enormous part in driving up the costs of health care in this country, which already represent 17.5 percent of our gross domestic product. The provision of services over well-being is one of the broken windows in health care that were identified by Women of Impact for Health Care, a collective impact group formed three years ago to solve health care’s most pressing problems.
- Ann Mond Johnson, CEO, Zest Health, on digital health technologies that facilitate the conversation and disrupt the market;
- Geri Baumblatt, Executive Director of Patient Experience at Emmi Solutions, on how human-centered decision support tools help people partner with physicians to make better decisions;
- Vineet Arora, MD, Pritzker School of Medicine, University of Chicago & Co-founder of Costs of Care, on the costs of care and the importance of educating health professionals on the costs of the decisions they make;
- Joanne Conroy, MD, CEO, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, on the culture of Lahey which emphasizes best practices, shared decision making, and Choosing Wisely; and
- Robin Strongin, Creator, Disruptive Women in Health Care®, will serve as moderator.
Attend this session to learn:
- How patient engagement requires an understanding of costs for true shared decision making
- How digital technologies can provide the necessary information and equip participants to make smart decisions
- How medical students and residents can be educated to understand the costs of the decisions they make
- How controlling costs by making smart decisions can lead to a more sustainable health care system
This is a free event; men are welcome. Hope to see you there!
Also don’t miss the 4th Annual Lown Institute Conference, Friday, April 15 to Sunday, April 17, 2016 at the JW Marriott Chicago. This is a must-attend event focusing on both overuse and lack of access to care, and it is open to clinicians, trainees, researchers, patient advocates and medical, nursing and public health representatives. This year’s meeting will kick off with an inaugural Research Day, with a keynote from Rita Redberg, MD, editor of JAMA Internal Medicine. The following two days offer thought-provoking keynotes from health care leaders Jeffrey Brenner, MD; John Ioannidis; MD, Joanne Lynn, MD; and Eliseo Medina, a leader in the labor movement. Panels will feature bright spots on the health care horizon, and a vision for a far better health care system. Skill-building workshops will focus on engaging in difficult conversations; conflict of interest and identifying bias in biomedical research; novel medical education approaches; and changing clinical culture. Come be part of the movement to transform American health care. Space is limited. Learn more and register.
