Wellness in a Networked World: Pioneering Ideas Podcast Episode 8

Mar 16, 2015, 10:28 AM, Posted by Lori Melichar

RWJF’s Pioneering Ideas Podcast explores cutting-edge ideas with the potential to build a Culture of Health. 

I’m speaking at SXSW this week, the annual festival in Austin, Texas, that brings together creative people from a range of fields to share ideas, many of them related to technical innovation. As I mingle with these innovators, it feels appropriate to be sharing the latest episode of our podcast, which explores how technology can promote well-being by connecting us to our essential self, what our knowledge of social relationships—and social media—can mean for how we design our communities, and how institutions can create organizational cultures where health and socially conscious innovation thrive.

I hope you’ll give it a listen, then join the conversation using the comments below or on Twitter at #RWJFPodcast. And if you’re also at SXSW and have ideas to share about building a Culture of Health, I hope you’ll reach out to me at @lorimelichar.
