BOSTON, MA (March 10, 2022) – Organizers of the first annual Aging and Loneliness Session Series, a track within HIMSS 22 are pleased to announce the keynote speaker of the inaugural session series. The series is curated by Boston–based age tech disruptor and Health eVillages sponsor, Cherish.
Donato Tramuto, CEO and Founder of the TramutoPorter Foundation and Health eVillages, and Board Chairman of Cherish will headline the event, to be held on Tuesday, March 15th from 1:30 pm – 6:00 pm. Tramuto has been widely recognized for his more than three-decade commitment to social change and healthcare innovation.
Tramuto is a global health activist, former CEO of Tivity Health, and founder of the TramutoPorter Foundation and Health eVillages. He has nearly four decades of business leadership experience and is most notable for his ability to balance transactional and transformational leadership within organizations. He has launched two successful start-ups, successfully lead the turnaround of a public healthcare company, and has executed innovative programs leading to sustainable business results through his Compassionate Leadership approach. Tramuto was the recipient of the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award in 2014 and the 2017 Robert F. Kennedy Embracing His Legacy Award. The New York Times has recognized Tramuto as “a global health activist.”
In addition to Tramuto’s keynote address, he will also present a ‘Meet the Author’ session, where attendees can pre-purchase a signed copy of his new book, “The Double Bottom Line: How Compassionate Leaders Captivate Hearts and Deliver Results,” which will be publicly available on April 5, 2022 and mingle with the author at the conclusion of the session series at 5:30pm in room 230A.
The HIMSS Aging and Loneliness Session Series will give voice to the experience, challenges, and needs of those aging and health compromised – explore the ways in which solutions that are supposed to keep them safe where they live have let them down; and introduce novel approaches to sensing, machine learning, and care delivery that may enable this growing population – our parents, grandparents, many of us – to live longer, more safely, with more joy wherever they may choose to live. During these sessions, attendees will hear from and engage with entrepreneurs and innovators across technology, service, and care delivery companies who are working on solutions to address these needs. We expect a robust conversation that may inspire you. We will also introduce and invite you to join a movement to give voice to this population.
