A foundational idea behind the Cornell institute for Healthy Futures is that the hospitality, healthcare and design (HHD) areas are beginning to intersect more frequently providing collaborative business opportunities for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs. The primary objective of this session is to provide the audience with perspectives on some of the many areas where this is occurring with a more specific focus on aspects of hospitality, food, and nutrition and the impact these have on health and wellness.
The format of this session is a panel discussion with panelists: drawing upon unique perspectives on the importance of the HHD fields working together; illustrating potential future opportunities for entrepreneurs/intrapreneurs; and providing examples of how clients/partners have successfully applied some of these ideas.
