Barriers to Innovation: Roundtable Discussion with Dr. Bob Crittenden
June 25, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Cambia Grove’s mission is to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs and the traditional health care sectors. We know that innovating in health care is hard. There are system level barriers preventing our health care sector to truly transform to be more person-focused and economically sustainable.
Join Dr. Bob Crittenden, Cambia Grove’s Executive in Residence, for a small roundtable discussion focused on listening to you, the entrepreneur. Dr. Bob will be asking various questions: What barriers you are facing? What has worked well? What has not worked so well? How can Cambia Grove help the community catalyze health care innovation?
