Esther Dyson: Are We Renting Out Our Health or Making a Long-term Investment?

When we started this podcast Amy and I had no idea where the journey would take us. Nor did we know how many amazing people we would get to meet because of it. Today’s guest is one of those people. 

Esther Dyson is a notable investor, board member, entrepreneur and even a one time cosmonaut in training. It’s hard to fully define what she has meant to the business world – from technology to aerospace and now health (care). After many years of making her mark as a journalist, investor and board member, today she is the executive founder of Wellville – a 10-year national nonprofit project to cultivate equitable wellbeing in five U.S. communities. 

Join us for a great discussion with Esther about why she’s more interested in “health” than “care.”
