Spotlight Health, now celebrating its fifth year as the opening segment of the annual Aspen Ideas Festival, begins June 21, 2018. The three-day tradition continues with an exceptional mix of inspiring, provocative, and startling experts who bring a wide lens to the topic of domestic and global health and medicine. Here, people from disparate disciplines find common ground, take us to the frontier of future science, help us understand how culture influences well-being, and develop long-lasting personal and professional connections. Surrounded by the towering peaks of Aspen, Colorado, the event is rich in learnings and conversation, with plenty of opportunities for casual interaction, outdoor adventure, films and other cultural offerings.

Today, the Constitution faces new challenges. Polarization is high. Truth is under assault, faith in leadership has declined, and tribalism is on the rise.
