What is Health:Further?

Health:Further is an open community focused on the future of health. We are driven to pursue two difficult ideals: that health is a human right, and that health must be supported affordably and sustainably. We are a community of providers, payers, politicians and practitioners. We are investors, innovators, artists and activists. We are patients, and together, we will create the ideal future of health.

When and where is Health:Further?

The Health:Further 2018 Festival will take place August 27-29 in Nashville, Tennessee. Check back in February to get your ticket.

Can people share a single ticket?

Short answer: No.

Long answer: We understand the need to stretch your cash. However, the value of the ticket is in access to the full range of programming built into whatever ticket tier you purchase. Neither you nor your team will benefit by splitting up attendance, so we’d much rather see you all there or, if that’s not possible, a single rep soaking it all in.

Do you offer discounts?

Short answer: No.

Long answer: This year we're expanding the Festival, adding more programming and new parties to the schedule. At the same time, we have dropped the price of tickets across the board, making the value of each ticket higher than ever. We believe that by pricing tickets at a set, accessible level, the Health:Further community can take full advantage of everything we have to offer in a way that won’t be a financial burden.

What about discounts for startups?

Short answer: No.

Long answer: We love startups. We are a startup, and our sister company invests in startups. We know how hard you work and how important it is to stretch every dollar (and nickel, and penny). To help you do that, we have priced tickets for startups (companies less than four years old) at $199 per person. Additionally, that cost does not increase with other price cliffs. We believe this price provides insane value for your company by giving you access to diverse programming, mentors, and investors that can help move you forward.

I can no longer attend Health:Further, can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, no, we are not issuing refunds. But you can transfer your ticket to someone else, for a fee of $50. See ‘How do I transfer my ticket to another person?’

How do I transfer my ticket to another person?

As the original ticket holder you should do the following:

  1.  Click here and “Modify Registration"
  2. Go through the registration process and change the information to the transferee's info
  3. Hit continue on each page until you get to the "Options Page"
  4. Check the Transfer Registration box and fill out the associated info
  5. Proceed to checkout page. You, the original registrant, will be charged a processing fee of $50.  

**Please note, your payment will show the price of your original ticket plus the $50 fee, but you will only be charged the processing fee.

Are continuing education hours available at the festival?

Short answer: No

Longer answer: Not yet

Long answer: We are actively pursuing options for continuing education to help you get the most out of your festival experience. We know how important contact hours are for medical practitioners, lawyers, and others, and that CEs can be a deciding factor in where to spend your travel/CE allowances. Thanks for your patience on this issue, and we hope to have good news soon.
