Leading Innovation in Health & Wellness Discussion at 2017 Lake Nona Impact Forum
For the past five years, Johnson & Johnson leadership has been making the seven-mile drive from Orlando’s International Airport to the sprawling, 17-square mile planned residential community known as Lake Nona in the City of Orlando, Florida. Lake Nona’s “living laboratory” community was designed to feature clusters of innovation and centers of excellence in health and well-being, sports, human performance and education. It’s home to the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute and also hosts the annual Lake Nona Impact Forum (LNIF), which has been supported by Johnson & Johnson since its inception five years ago.
The LNIF is an invitation-only premier event which brings together more than 250 health and wellness thought leaders from around the globe from industry, academia and government who all share a common mission—solving problems and inspiring change in the future healthcare landscape. The conference brings the best and brightest minds together for thoughtful and collaborative conversation about the importance of improving health, increasing access to care, and lowering costs by developing new products and solutions.
And this collaboration with LNIF fits squarely with Johnson & Johnson’s commitment to the culture of health and well-being—advancing a common vision of better healthcare for all through the convergence of technology and innovation.
The 2017 LNIF featured discussions about some of the most pressing issues facing the U.S. and global health systems today, from America’s most costly chronic diseases—like diabetes and mental healthcare—to technological advances impacting personal well-being and health, the Affordable Care Act and healthcare innovations for an aging population.
