Reimagining Health Care:
Human Connection as the Foundation for Transformation

Start 3C at Your Organization: Join the Movement

Human connection is needed now more than ever. That's why we've redesigned 3rd Conversation events to be held both virtually or in person.

Let us know you're interested in a 3rd Conversation event:



Spark events bring together clinicians and patients to connect and talk openly about working in the system and receiving care. The experience builds empathy and a deep appreciation for one another's core humanity. 

Ignite events bring together administrators and clinicians to process the COVID experience, connect as human beings, and imagine a better future together.

  • Helps participants envision the future of the health care system

Event Details:

  • Approximately 2.5 hours
