Do You Want to Help Make Health?


Are you interesting in developing a solution to a healthcare problem? DO you have a great idea that can help the MedStar Health community on it's path to wellness?

I am pleased to share with you an invitation to  Making Health as part of the White House Week of Making. Co-hosted with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Idea Lab and National Institutes of Health, we are welcoming  clinicians and researchers with an opportunity to interact with health providers, patients, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and others who are creating healthcare solutions – and learn about the tools and resources available for making their own solutions.

We are defining “making” as using technology and design tools to create physical objects” (versus software solutions).


The event is being hosted on June 23, from 2:00 – 7:00 pm, at the Georgetown University Leavey Center. Brief informal talks will be scheduled between 2:00 and 5:30 pm, followed by a reception until 7:00 pm.

At the event, there will be hands-on creative exhibitions featuring examples of 3-D printing, home-made training aids, and inventions; information from the FDA; NIH 3-d and tech transfer examples; patent models from the Smithsonian’s innovation exhibit; projects from nurse makers; 1776 startups; and more.


This special event will also provide attendees with an opportunity to share creative ideas with key leaders from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (including the National Institutes of Health and U.S. Food and Drug Administration), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and many more.

To attend, please RSVP to the MedStar Institute for Innovation at: www.maker.medstarhealth.org
