SXSW: Sharing the Hospital Story at the South by Southwest Festival

As part of the 2019 South by Southwest (SXSW) festival’s Interactive Health and MedTech track, the American Hospital Association and hospital leaders shared how hospitals and health systems are transforming to advance health in their communities.

In addition to AHA, participating organizations include the Aetna Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Cambia Health Foundation, the St. David’s Foundation, the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society, as well as civic, hospital and community leaders from across the country.
