Meet the Winners & Runners-Up From Our Health Talks Student Contest!


Health Talks is an evening event at our annual Quality Forum, where speakers take to the podium to share their hopes for health care.

Each year, we provide an opportunity for a student to be one of those speakers through our Health Talks Student Contest, where contestants share what they’re passionate about through a video, an essay or any creative outlet they choose!

We were moved by the many thoughtful and timely entries to our student contest this year, and we can’t wait to see what the winner has in store for Health Talks. In the meantime, we wanted to share the stand-out submissions from our winners, Lillian Chen and Tina Cheng, and runners-up, Sukhmeet Sachal and Sydney Sparanese. Take a look at their hopes for health care below.
