It’s been said that human innovation is at its most powerful when it springs from compassion. For Mark Ganz, seeing his mother’s wishes not met at the end of her life fired his passion about the role of health care and the transformation required to recreate an intertwined network of care–one centered on the needs of people and their families throughout the cycle of life–from birth to its natural completion. Mark closes the day with a challenge to let our humanity guide us as we shape health care to support what we want most for ourselves and for the people we love.
