Arc Fusion

Arc Fusion's mission is to accelerate the emerging fusion of health, IT, and biomedicine – and everything else. Since 2014, we have convened over 23 events around the world focusing on themes that include AI and Health, the cost of healthcare, bioenhancing humans, the opioid crisis, the future of humans and technology, longevity, neurogaming and the brain, radical wellness, and more. Our signature event is the Arc Fusion Dinner, where invited guests gather around small tables, and everyone speaks. We have a vigorous arts and science program with music, dance, film, and theatrical offerings. Our aim is to wow you and to sweep you out of your normal meeting mindset to draw out your deepest thoughts and insights - some of which we share on our website, and develop with partners into action plans on select topics.
