Plugging into the Onboard Health community has been really rewarding. The newsletter provides a weekly dose of insightful commentary on public health innovation and the community enables new connections, I’m already working on a collaboration around public health and our food system with a connection I made through Onboard. I’m excited to see what the community achieves as it continues to grow.
Senior Public Health Consultant - Switch/Health
“Onboard Health fills a critical need – it’s essentially the intersection of public health, healthcare and innovation. I’ve been in the public health field for over 10 years and haven’t seen a single source or organization that curates the thought-provoking material like Onboard Health does. The opportunity to collaborate with other Onboard Health members is highly valuable. I’ve been in touch with Wes Melville and we’ve been in talks to co-write a couple blog posts on food waste, food insecurity and the opportunities for social innovation from there. I’m excited to see Onboard Health grow its membership and how we can collectively make a larger impact.”
