Do you know pioneers who are improving the healthcare system? Get in touch!

The cardiologist who opened a practice in Greece for people without health insurance. The social entrepreneur who organises health courses for immigrants in Germany. The nine-year-old who blogs about school lunches and ensures that England’s schools serve up more vegetables. More and more people from all over Europe are taking the reins and trying to improve the healthcare system in differing ways. Whether it be with a project, a business, in academia or an initiative – we want to offer these pioneers a platform at the Alpbach Healthcare Symposium 2015, so that we can all learn from their valuable experiences.
