The Aspen Institute’s Health, Medicine and Society (HMS) Program
HMS, the domestic health initiative of the Aspen Institute, brings together influential groups of thought leaders, decisionmakers, and the informed public to tackle health challenges facing the US in the 21st century. Reasoned discussion and analytical rigor are core elements of its nonpartisan work, but HMS also honors disruptive thinking; seeks intersections across disciplines; and goes well beyond the “usual suspects” in recruiting participants for its events.
The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues.
