The home base for our most creative programming is our SXSW Health House: a pop-up community center at Cooper’s BBQ (next door to all the SXSW Health programming at the JW Marriott) sponsored by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Aetna Foundation, Cambia Health Foundation, St. David’s Foundation, Novartis, and other partners.

Morning coffee, meetings, private policy discussions, TedTalk style programming, community events, concerts and receptions will be hosted here.



Convening thought-leadership through official SXSW sessions at the JW Marriott and the new downtown “Energizing Health House” at Cooper’s BBQ next door to the Marriott for creative programming and startup engagement.


Leadership development with community advocates, philanthropic organizations, the nation’s leading health associations and industry partners to shape health innovation and launch a health equity innovation movement.


Energizing Health @ SXSW is about new partnerships and initiatives. We’re hosting meetups, receptions, and most importantly empowering communities to eliminate disparities and create a culture of health.


We want innovative solutions for working with communities, venture, health associations, and civic leaders to effect change. We’ll be hosting office hours for startups, highlighting new strategic partnerships, and opening doors.
