What's the Fix? 2018 Conference

  • Dell Medical School, HLB Auditorium 1501 Red River Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

The Design Institute for Health and conference founder Healthsparq bring "What's the Fix?," a new health care conference like no other, to the Dell Medical School campus.

"What’s the Fix?" (#WTFix) is a movement and an event that started in 2017 to help the industry learn from people. Most healthcare conferences focus on industry insiders talking to each other. "What’s the Fix?" highlights real people with real stories of overcoming healthcare challenges and driving change to the system as a result. The conference is about being human, being empathetic and using storytelling as a way to drive change in an industry that really needs help.

"What’s the Fix?" features courageous people navigating a dysfunctional system and inspiring change along the way. Whether you're a patient, caregiver, doctor, med student or someone who works in a hospital or health system, we all have a shared goal — finding new and better ways to fix health care.

Registration is free! Participants may attend in person (limited seating) or virtually.
