Keynote Speaker Announced 

We are pleased to announce our Keynote Speaker will be Darshak Sanghavi, MD, program manager at the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H)—a newly created multibillion dollar federal agency tasked with developing health programs that are “so bold no one else, not even the private sector, is willing to give them a chance.” His talk, “Unlocking Health Solutions through Innovation,” will highlight the innovative collaborations and projects ARPA-H is advancing. A trained clinician who has served in high level public and private sector advisory roles, Dr. Sanghavi will discuss how this new wave of research and innovations is changing how we think about healthcare’s challenges and will address why the agency is so important at this time. He will highlight ARPA-H investments and commitments and the timeline for impact, including how healthcare systems and states should be thinking about ARPA-H funded innovations and preparing for scaling breakthroughs that improve outcomes.  

Before joining ARPA-H, Dr. Sanghavi was global chief medical and clinical operating officer for Babylon, the global end-to-end digital healthcare provider serving more than a dozen countries and 24 million-plus people, with the mission of bringing “affordable and accessible healthcare to everyone on earth.” He also has served in senior roles at UnitedHealthcare’s Medicare & Retirement, OptumLabs, the R&D hub of UnitedHealth Group, and in the Obama Administration as the Director of Preventive and Population Health at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, where he directed the development of large pilot programs designed to improve the nation’s healthcare costs and quality. He is an award-winning medical educator, who has worked in medical settings around the world. He will draw on these diverse experiences to inspire and challenge attendees to unlock solutions to some of our healthcare system’s most complex issues.
