10/22/2018 17:00:00

This private gathering of a select group of leaders will focus on the growing notion of "food as medicine"--the impact of food on health outcomes, promising developments in technological innovation, and policy ideas that may prevent disease through nutrition.

With healthcare costs continuing to rise, it is imperative to focus on food and nutrition as tools to not only promote greater sustainability and better well-being, but to eliminate poor health while preventing costly health problems such obesity, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease across the United States. This is the time to focus on actionable solutions. The Food Leaders Roundtable is a part of the Milken Institute's ongoing "Feeding Change" program to achieve a healthier food system.

The world population aged 60 and over will rise from 900 million to 2.1 billion by midcentury. While questions about medical costs and retirement savings stir concern, increasing longevity and health have spurred unprecedented economic growth. Older individuals seek to remain engaged and relevant as long as possible. Businesses are now recognizing that this segment of society represents a dynamic global resource--with their consumer strength, their product and service needs, and the wisdom and experience that they bring to the workforce. The Business Council aims to change policies, practices, hearts, and minds to ensure that companies and societies benefit from the global demographic shift.

This session will open with a conversation with Robert Redfield, Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, followed by a panel discussion.

Partnerships can be the key to advancing global health innovation by providing increased expertise through multi-stakeholder collaboration, greater opportunities for scale through expanded reach, and further mechanisms to bridge looming financial gaps. In context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which target "healthy lives and well-being for all at all ages", this session will illuminate how mobilizing alternative sources of capital, employing innovative financial models, and engaging in new cross-sector partnerships can most effectively catalyze progress throughout the global health ecosystem.

The U.S. Surgeon General has said that better partnerships lead to better national health. As a result, a number of agencies, organizations, and companies are re-examining how they approach combatting the opioid crisis in their local communities. Collaborative approaches that both stress the importance of prevention and engage all aspects of a community to address addiction as a disease instead of a moral failing are beginning to become more prevalent. This panel will discuss the opioid epidemic as a national public health emergency, while also highlighting how local-level collaborative action – with New Jersey as a case study– is the key to helping our communities emerge from this crisis.

Finding a Cure for the Cost of Durable Therapies

10/23/2018 11:00:00

"Curative" is not a word that we can use very often in medicine, especially when talking about diseases such as cancer and rare genetic disorders. However, the first curative therapies are already here, and the wave is coming. The Food and Drug Administration approved three gene- and cell-based therapies last year. In contrast to traditional therapeutics that alleviate symptoms alone, gene- and cell-based therapies hold the promise of treating the underlying cause of a disorder for long periods of time, perhaps even curing or preventing disease. Excitement around recent approvals of the first gene therapies comes with a desire to speed development of similar therapeutics in the pipeline, as well as concern over upfront costs that could run hundreds of thousands of dollars for each patient. How do we ensure that patients get access for durable therapies while companies are rewarded for their investment? Some are turning to financial innovation, hoping to reallocate payment timing, risk, and incentives among stakeholders in the supply chain to promote access to durable therapies for those who need it. This panel will explore several approaches to financial innovation in the quest to find a cure for the cost of durable therapies.

We are in the midst of a food revolution fueled by shifting consumer preferences, emerging nutrition science, geopolitical shifts and health crises. A healthier food system would result in better well-being, lower healthcare costs, greater sustainability, and reduced disparities in the United States. With health-care-related costs continuing to rise, it is imperative to focus on food and nutrition as tools to eliminate poor health and to prevent obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other costly health problems. How do we raise awareness of food as an ingredient in our healthcare system and make best use of new developments in food technology and innovation? What are actionable solutions and policy ideas to prevent disease through nutrition and make our country healthier overall?

Traditional models of medical product research and development and health-care delivery are being disrupted, as incentives for research and care shift and technology opens up new opportunities. Hospitals and universities are shaking up conventional approaches to their roles. New investment models are emerging for financing early-stage R&D all the way to product approval and access. What is behind these transformations, and what will the health-care and research landscape look like for patients and investors over the next few years?

People who reach age 65 today in the U.S. can be expected to live, on average, another 20 years. Yet the Medicare program was designed to treat acute conditions, not to help older adults manage their chronic conditions and prevent illness in the future. How might laws like the recently enacted CHRONIC Care Act transform Medicare to better address the primary health of older adults today? How are healthcare systems and health plans changing incentives to promote prevention and wellness as people live longer lives?

Innovators are realizing tremendous value from using telehealth in patient care and clinical trials. Leading health care organizations are increasing access to care while demonstrating improved outcomes and decreased cost. At the same time, medical research organizations are sensing the emerging promise to increase patient centricity and accelerate development while reducing R&D cost and enhancing diversity in clinical trial populations. Can lessons-learned in patient care translate to clinical trials? If the value is high, why has the uptake been slow? Are there best practices from government organizations that can help speed up implementation in the private sector?

The human brain is one of the most powerful - yet least understood - machines on the planet. Despite the social, ethical, and economic imperatives to cure and prevent diseases of the aging brain - from mild cognitive impairment to Alzheimer's - we know much less than what is needed to truly address these illnesses. This session will examine what the leading scientists, scholars and policy experts know about how lifestyle issues such as nutrition, stress, and physical activity may impact long-term brain health, as well as promising breakthroughs in the development of new drug therapies to prevent and treat Alzheimer's disease.

Only one in five adults meet recommended physical activity guidelines, with the average adult clocking in at nearly 12 hours a day sitting at their desks, on their couches, or in their cars. Studies show that people who are physically active tend to live longer and have lower risk for heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression, and some cancers.

The average adult also spends close to 11 hours looking at a screen per day and checks their phone every 10 minutes. Our modern-day reliance on these digital devices and their habit-forming qualities has led to decreased face-to-face social connection and negative impacts on mental health and wellness.

This session will offer Summit participants the opportunity to learn simple exercises that everyone can incorporate into their daily office routine, and to make time for mindfulness through a guided meditation to reduce anxiety and stress in the workplace and our everyday lives.

How Opportunity Zones Can Widen Access to Healthy Foods (Invite only)

Opportunity Zones, created in December as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, aim to use tax incentives to encourage investment in low- to moderate-income communities. The potential to leverage private sector dollars to address public health issues offers a unique opportunity to address key societal issues through commercially viable means. In particular, unhealthy eating habits have contributed to the obesity epidemic in the United States: about one-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese and approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2--19 years are obese.1 Even for people at a "healthy weight", a poor diet is associated with major health risks that can cause illness and even death (e.g. Chronic Heart Disease, Diabetes, Cancer). By making smart food choices, you can help protect yourself from these health problems. However, for some communities, eating unhealthy foods is not a choice but rather the only option. Studies have shown that Low-income neighborhoods offered greater access to food sources that promote unhealthy eating. The distribution of fast-food outlets and convenience stores differed by the racial/ethnic characteristics of the neighborhood. This Private Session will explore how local/state governments can work with investors to promote capital for businesses that provide improved access to healthy foods.

Over the past decade, business courses, magazines, and media outlets have overflowed with advice and research on how companies can "create a culture of innovation." Recommendations such as embrace failure, eliminate hierarchy, be transparent, and promote diversity in thought, have provided a guidebook for innovation in business, but do we know the components necessary to create a global culture of biomedical innovation? Who are the players best suited to push the boundaries of innovation around the world? How do we know we are achieving a culture of innovation? What metrics can help us measure success?

The socioeconomic toll of neurodegenerative disease grows more alarming every year: the 2017 costs of dementia care were greater than 250 billion dollars. Over the next 30 years, that number is expected to increase four-fold to reach 1.1 trillion dollars annually. As we continue to understand the magnitude of the crisis, there are places where federal, commercial, and philanthropic funders can make a real difference.

The Milken Institute Center for Strategic Philanthropy has partnered with several leading foundations and individual philanthropists to map out how philanthropic capital can advance our understanding of how the brain functions in order to build a treatment pipeline for an array of neurodegenerative diseases. This session will bring together experts who are leading the way to fund basic research, break down silos, and advance science through increased collaboration, data sharing, and ultimately changing the culture of scientific research.

There is growing demand for creating a health-care workforce that looks like the population it serves. Current health-care employee statistics appear to defy the plethora of research that evidences how diversity in research and development, upper management, and corporate boards positively impacts financial performance, systemic innovation, dynamic decision-making, enhanced accountability, and, as a result, overall health outcomes.

The Milken Institute and Horizon Pharma welcome all attendees of the Future of Health Summit to join us for a networking breakfast to discuss ways in which we can all work to move the needle on diversity in health-care leadership. We invite you to join discussion tables led by industry hosts on topics including mentorship, data transparency, educating next generation leaders, and investing in health-care diversity, among others.

This session will open with a conversation with Francis Collins, Director, National Institutes of Health, moderated by CNBC's Meg Tirrell, followed by a panel discussion.

Like physical health, mental health requires awareness, care, management and vigilance. As the world comes to grips with the enormity and urgency of our global mental health crisis, we need to take stock of all tools at our disposal. To do this, there is value to segmenting all of life's stages - childhood, adolescence, emerging adulthood, middle age and retirement - to determine the distinct mental health and brain development needs of each. This panel will explore how specific factors - such as childhood traumas, bullying, suicidality, addiction and social isolation - affect mental health over a lifetime in order to uncover the best ways to build, maintain and reinforce mental health resilience from cradle to grave.

The first chief patient officer role was created in 2014, and since then, biopharmaceutical companies have created similar positions, restructured teams, and convened internal meetings to advance patient engagement and patient-centered practices throughout their organizations. Similarly, disease foundations that fund research to improve the lives of their patient community discovered that they, too, could benefit from being more internally focused as organizations on connecting directly with their patient community. In the world of value-based care, hospitals are also realigning the processes to ensure that patients are part of the input around what value the care is providing. The panel will highlight ways organizations are restructuring and realigning themselves to ensure they are providing the best possible patient care.

Women's Health: Addressing Disparities from Health Leadership to Patient Care

Women are disproportionately affected by issues surrounding health, as health decision-makers, caregivers, and patients. Women make 80 percent of health-care decisions for their families, and they are much more likely to serve as the primary caregiver for a family member who falls ill. Women also utilize more health-care services than men, accounting for 57 percent of all doctors' office expenses. On top of that, women make up close to 80 percent of the health workforce. Yet only one Fortune 500 health-care company has a female CEO, and only 23 percent of executives at Fortune 500 health-care companies are women. Despite decades of mandates from Congress, women still make up less than half of clinical trial participants, and gender differences in outcomes are still inadequately studied. What initiatives are currently in place to ensure medical research and healthcare are reflecting the perspectives and priorities of women moving forward? What can all leaders do to further promote the inclusion of women at the leadership level of major health-care companies? How can industry shifts towards gender equity positively affect global health?

Over the last decade, the Food and Drug Administration has worked hard to take a more nimble approach to regulation, increase the number of approvals, prioritize truly innovative products, and integrate patient perspective into its evaluations. Now the agency is facing challenges relating to regulating medical products in the digital age - digital health technologies, machine learning algorithms, integration of data and evidence from non-traditional sources, digiceuticals, and adaptive trials based on complex biostatistical methods, and more. Is the agency prepared to regulate this brave new world unfolding at warp speed? What are the promises and potential pitfalls of these new technologies for patients?

An estimated 30.3 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, or 9.4% of the population. In 2017, the costs of diagnosed diabetes totaled $327 billion, including $237 billion in health care costs and $90 billion in reduced productivity. Unfortunately, both the incidence of diabetes and obesity as a key risk factor continue to grow. Industry, government, advocacy groups, and patients are working together to reduce this health crisis in addition to its economic burden. This session will discuss what can be done differently in order to address this costly epidemic and will ask what is stopping us from achieving better outcomes.

Race, Gender, and Work: The Economics of Healthy Aging

Living healthy and economically-secure lives through old age is a goal shared by all, but aging can pose unique hurdles for women and members of racial and ethnic minority groups. Because of disadvantageous wage gaps, care-giving responsibilities, and life-expectancy trends, women often reach age 65 with fewer financial resources to support them in retirement. Overall, women receive almost $4,000 less per year in Social Security payments than do men. Women of color face an even greater disparity. How do these factors affect their health? This session will explore the inter-sectional issues facing women as they age and opportunities to address them.

This closing session will begin with a conversation with Scott Gottlieb, Commissioner, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, moderated by FasterCures' Tanisha Carino.

Following this discussion, Michael Milken, Chairman of the Milken Institute, will share the remarkable medical progress of the past two-plus decades along with a special retrospective of the 1998 March on Washington, which brought together hundreds of thousands of patients, physicians, elected and appointed members of the U.S. government, foundations and leaders of industry to support greater funding of our federal health and research agencies. He’ll explore what these developments have meant in terms of lives saved and extended, as well as what impact they have had for today's science and tomorrow's patients.

From the recent resurgence of Ebola in Congo and raging wildfires in California, to disastrous earthquakes in Indonesia and the re-emerging focus on the significant impact of Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico - the need for strategic preparedness and organized, collaborative response to global health threats brought on by disease and natural disasters is of the utmost importance. Past evidence tends to suggest that both government and private sector responders leap into action at moments of emergency, talk about plans, and - as the immediacy of the emergency begins to subside - enthusiasm and interest inevitably wanes. This session will place priority on committed action rather than false hope, and will explore strategies that ensure follow-through on pledges and promises to rebuild resilient communities and better prepare for future disasters, all while avoiding the pitfalls of distraction brought on by the next urgent crisis.
