New York & Connecticut

New York, Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made

 

The Empire State. Starting point on Wednesday morning for The Road to 50 States. Lots to navigate on this first day, predominantly in and around New York City, not to mention the infamous Triborough traffic, so the team made an early start heading to Brooklyn, where they met Alex Fetkovsky, Managing Partner of SanaClis – kind sponsor of Day One. If you haven't already, watch the daily video at the top of this page to experience the highlights from the journey's beginning. The Road to 50 States will feature a video every day as the team navigates around the country, meeting companies and getting their views on the next big thing in healthcare, and discovering some other big things across America. Daily pages like this will also feature 50 images taken on each day's travels. You can see the captioned images from Day 1 below. The Big Apple was a busy start to this epic journey. Join us day by day as the team experiences the differences across 50 great States.
