The Milken Institute Summit (FHS) convenes the best minds in the world to confront the most significant health challenges by matching human, financial, and scientific resources with the most innovative, inclusive, and impactful ideas.

The pandemic has influenced the way we think about health and pushed health to the forefront of our minds. Now, more than ever, the public is acutely attuned to how the health system works, the impact of health policy, and the importance of scientific discovery and communication. And the larger implications of these changes are more pronounced than ever before, highlighting the connections between physical and mental health, health and the environment, and public health and the health of our economy.

The Summit aims to build upon the profound recent progress and tackle the remaining challenges illuminated by the pandemic. The Summit convenes annually to connect the Milken Institute’s catalytic community of changemakers to advance our programmatic work ranging from biomedical research, health equity, and food access to healthy longevity, mental health, and technological innovation. The Summit will amplify proprietary research, thought leadership, and policy priorities emerging from the Institute’s Center for Public Health, Center for the Future of Aging, Center for Strategic Philanthropy, and FasterCures.

This year’s three-day Summit will kick off with our Partnering for Patients Forum, shining a light on the latest biomedical innovation advances, needs, and ideas generated by and for the patient community. We invite you to join us and turn the lessons learned over the past two years into a healthier, more equitable, and sustainable future for us all.
