MUSE NYC 2016 Shines as an Evening of Healthcare Video and Innovation

MUSE, curated by Klick Health, is an inspirational gathering where healthcare thought leaders, healthcare video artists, and technological innovators happily collide through presentation and conversation.  The most recent MUSE NYC 2016 occurred on March 31st at Center548. The lineup of speakers was superb:  Leerom Segal, Klick Health CEO, Ron Fournier, political columnist, Louie Schwartzberg, award-winning filmmaker, Claire Wineland, Seventeen Magazine’s “Power Teen,” Dr. John Brownstein, professor and health innovator, Susan Bennett, original voice of Apple’s Siri, Professor Marc Edwards, Flint Michigan warrior, Dan White, celebrity magician, and Arianna Huffington.

If your focus includes compelling visual storytelling, Louie Schwartzberg’s jaw-dropping time-lapse cinematography particularly resonated.  Schwartzberg reflected on our collective human need for absorbing the visuals of unfiltered nature.  Screening pure wildlife videos can be healing, and there is an opportunity for such videos to be broadcast much more widely throughout many hospitals, medical offices and other healthcare venues.

Here’s a sampling of Louie’s work:

Another highlight of MUSE NYC 2016 can be attributed to the presentation of Harvard Medical School Professor, Boston Children’s Hospital Chief Innovation Officer, and Uber Healthcare advisor, John Brownstein, PhD.  “3.6 million patients across the US miss at least one appointment due to lack of access to transportation,” Brownstein cited, as he introduced Circulation, a new vision for non-emergency transportation.

MUSE NYC 2016 densely packed in illuminating conversations on so many topics; this is only a small sampling.  Keynote speaker Arianna Huffington addressed the all-importance of a good night’s sleep.  A very interesting point that she brought up is that 75% of health is tied to lifestyle choices, only 25% to genetics. Obviously, there are many opportunities to teach people how to be healthier. Later, when Arianna exclaimed, “A good day starts the night before by getting enough sleep,” a majority of MUSE attendees wondered if they should run home for healing slumber, or temporarily disregard that wisdom and stay for the sounds of DJ Skratch Bastid.
