Lake Nona Impact Forum returns to accelerate health and wellbeing innovation

The Lake Nona Impact Forum will see leaders from health, wellbeing, technology and business gather in Florida during 8-10 March 2023.

The annual event brings together hundreds of leaders committed to improving human health on a global scale with a mission of developing and discussing long-term strategies that will catalyse the industry worldwide.

The invite-only event will feature an array of speakers from across the health spectrum and, as in previous years, be hosted at the Lake Nona wellness community in Orlando, Florida.

Established more than two decades ago, Lake Nona is a 17-square-mile community created with the vision of building the ideal place to inspire human potential through innovation.

The population has steadily grown and now tens of thousands of people live, work and study in Lake Nona. The community is also home to some of the nation’s top universities, hospitals and research institutions where internationally acclaimed healthcare experts have launched businesses and pioneered first-of-its-kind advancements in their fields.

"Since its inception 11 years ago, Lake Nona Impact Forum’s North Star is to inspire human potential through health and wellbeing innovation,” said event founder Gloria Caulfield (check out her exclusive interview with Spa Business here).

“As the meaning of wellbeing has evolved, so have the discussions and luminaries we host, from the effects of the healthcare sector on climate change to the potential benefits of psychedelic therapy for mental health.

“Our long-term goal is to be an incubator that accelerates health and wellbeing innovation and sparks global change needed for public health, health systems and beyond.”

The programme
Throughout the event, creative thinkers will engage in conversations for extraordinary times including a dynamic mix of government and policy leaders, physicians and healthcare pioneers, prolific academics, tech visionaries from Fortune 50 companies to start-ups, professional athletes and entertainers, CEOs and C-Suite executives and more.

This year’s programme will feature discussions on topics including climate change and public health, brain health, health equity for children and women, cancer prevention, food as medicine and more.

Among the dozens of conversations taking place throughout the event, a few of the key panel discussions will include:
