Prime Health presents Colorado Smart Cities Alliance & The Future of Health Care with Jake Rishavy
Do YOU know about Colorado's Smart Cities Alliance?
What’s a smart city beyond a marketing buzzword? Examples of cities, towns, and regions being intelligent about their growth, focused on quality of life, and their envisioned futures exist from 100, 500, even 1000 years ago. While this optimal state has long been pursued, it has never been achieved. So, why can we succeed today while so many before us have failed?
Join us as Jake Rishavy educates on what the Smart Cities Alliance is, how it relates to health and health innovation, shares an inspirational vision for the future, and informs us on opportunities to get involved.
Refreshments and networking begin at 5:30. Presentation begins at 6:15, followed by Q&A.
This event is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you!
