About Health Investors Gatherings:

If you are a new MIE member investing in health, welcome and join us for these regular informal health investor gatherings! MIE member gatherings are interview driven and conversation-style. They provide a virtual space for subsets of the MIE membership to build community, learn together and share strategic and innovative practices. Being on-camera and fully engaged are encouraged. Virtual meetings of the health investors are not intended to be recorded offerings due to the community-building goals for the calls.    

If you have questions for the conversation sparks, or topics  you would like to cover during this or future health investors gatherings, please email Zineb Touzani at [email protected] or Melanie Audette at [email protected]

MIE members will need to log in to register. If you are having trouble with logging in, please contact Madeline Kraft at [email protected]. If you are not a member of MIE and would like to attend, please inquire at [email protected].
