Event Overview: Aspen Ideas: Health

By creating a forum to share knowledge and experience, Aspen Ideas: Health offers a unique opportunity to turn ideas into action and carve pathways towards better health for all.

Aspen Ideas: Health Returns to In-Person Programming in 2022

Aspen Ideas: Health will return to the Aspen Institute’s wondrous 40-acre campus in the Rocky Mountains from June 22-25, 2022. The three-day event, which has opened the renowned Aspen Ideas Festival (June 25-July 1, 2022) since 2014, is where health’s biggest challenges meet its biggest thinkers.

We regard the health and safety of event staff and attendees as our highest priority. Review our current Aspen Institute COVID safety guidelines, which will continue to be evaluated and updated based on the latest guidance from the CDC and local public health officials. Attendees will be kept well-informed about these protocols through the event.
