“Ever since attending the first meeting in 2005, I have come to think of these Summits as the 21st century version of an 18th century salon. Seasoned thought leaders from government, business, and a variety of academic disciplines from many countries come together to have elevated conversations on a topic at the intersection of health, healthcare, and technology.”

Uwe Reinhardt, James Madison Professor of Political Economy, Princeton University

Where We Go from Here

Since the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR), the Summit Secretariat, concluded the annual meeting in 2012, we have shifted our focus from an annual meeting to more targeted work that builds on the Summit’s past themes and concrete outcomes. NBR continues to provide forums for decision-makers to grapple with problems and solutions, share best practices, and forge effective collaborations. Building on the momentum from Summit discussions and in response to the social scientific research needs identified by the decision-makers we convened, NBR has launched new research initiatives through its Center for Health and Aging.
