The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster enlightened leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with issues critical to our society. The Institute has campuses in Aspen, Colorado, and on the Wye River on Marylandâ€™s Eastern Shore. It also maintains offices in New York City and has an international network of partners in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
The Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN) is a growing, worldwide community of entrepreneurial leaders from business, government, and the nonprofit sectorâ€”more than 2,500 Fellows from over 50 countriesâ€”who are committed to enlightened leadership and to using their extraordinary creativity, energy, and resources to tackle the foremost societal challenges of our times. All Fellows share the common experience of participating in one of the 14 active Aspen Global Leadership Network Fellowship programs in the US, Africa, Central America, India, the Middle East, and China.
The Health Innovators Fellowship
Launched in 2015, the two-year Health Innovators Fellowship is designed to build a cadre of healthcare innovatorsâ€”highly successful leaders from across the US healthcare ecosystemâ€”who are deeply committed to each other and to using their skills and experiences to improving the health and well-being of Americans. Each year, 20 Fellows are chosen to participate in the program. Fellows commit to attending four text-based, moderated seminars over a two-year period and to launching a new venture that stretches them in their leadership and addresses a healthcare challenge of their choosing. Alumni of the Fellowship become members of the Aspen Global Leadership Network. The Fellowship is sustained through the generous support of the Greenville Health System.
