August 6, 2020 | New York, NY
3rd Annual Northwell Health Innovation Summit

Northwell Health will once again be convening an elite group of leading executives, investors, philanthropists and entrepreneurs to come together to form strategic partnerships and elevate the field of health innovation.


To our Constellation Forum Community:

Like you, our team is closely monitoring the news around COVID-19, and assure you the health and safety of our attendees, partners and staff is of the highest importance.

We have made the decision that the 2020 conference will proceed– in-person or digitally, rain or shine.

While we are of course hoping the situation will improve over the coming months, we are thoughtfully preparing for any contingency. At the least, we will enable a “hybrid” solution (physical and digital) so all sessions will proceed as planned, ideally with live attendance and alternatively with virtual participation/engagement.

We continue to receive RSVPs from attendees and speakers so it feels like we are doing right by you, our community members,  to plan for the event taking place. And in consultation with you, we want to ensure we do this in the safest and most impactful format possible.

Simultaneously we see an opportunity to engage and mobilize our network, and address healthcare innovation’s most pressing needs as they emerge, especially in light of the current COVID-19 Pandemic. The Constellation Forum has always prided itself on being a community of people who are motivated to action. In a time of crisis, our network can rise to the occasion and serve as the convening place where the most important conversations take place, and critical partnerships can be quickly developed and engaged.

Stay tuned for more updates.  We look forward to seeing you (live, digitally, or both) come August!
