“Health:Further Festival” cancelled as team goes in new direction

The annual “Health:Further Festival” in Nashville has been officially cancelled. In an email to past participants and others yesterday, Marcus Whitney, one of the key players, wrote that the team is putting its energy on a new strategy.

“We will be rolling up our sleeves and partnering with leading healthcare organizations that see the pace of change accelerating as we do, and seek a collaborative approach to building a bridge from where they are to where we are all going,” Whitney wrote. “The festival has been incredible for building a community of thousands of people like you, who are truly passionate about where this critical industry of healthcare is headed. We know (for a fact) that in this community are our future partners. And so of course we wanted to tell you first about our evolution into a strategic advisory firm, whose purpose is to partner with leading healthcare organizations to advance necessary change at scale.”
