Discussion Series: Human Flourishing 2030

Imagine it’s 2030 and we live in a healthier world where healthcare learners, practitioners and patients are flourishing. What does that future look like, and what will it take to get there? We need your voice and participation to chart that future.

Clinical encounters play a role, but an increasingly interconnected world requires that we widen the lens to consider the big picture of what influences health and flourishing. The KNN’s next discussion series will explore the impact, challenges and opportunities that different aspects of our ecosystem pose for the future of human flourishing. Four sessions will examine external influences, micro to macro, that shape and drive the vitality of healthcare students, professionals and broader society.

This series is presented by the Kern National Network for Caring & Character in Medicine through an investment from the Kern Family Trust and Kern Family Foundation.
