Welcome to The Believe in Better Project

Created by Hailey Sault

Want to see health care from a new perspective? Meet doctors, healers, designers, strategists, data analysts, academics, advocates, marketers and more—who share a vision for better healthcare. And better lives.

The resources on this site extend the ideas of those who joined us for the The Believe in Better Project in 2019 and 2018 in Duluth, Minnesota. This intimate gathering brought participants together from across the continent to share engaging, provocative, enterprising ideas and dialogue.

We’re proud to introduce you to some of these compassionate change seekers. Bold innovators. And practical mindfulness makers. Watch the videos. Hear the podcast.
