Our Story

After years of leading and participating in networking groups, we recognized that certain kinds of interactions energized us while others felt like another "to-do". We formed "Hygge" (pronounced hoo-guh) in February 2016 with the goal of fostering a close-knit community built upon a foundation of authentic connections with leaders and innovators in health.

Through intimate dinners centered on timely topics in health and technology and the sharing of ideas and expertise, Hygge Health is the respite for those who realize the power of getting like-minded women together to mobilize or merely reenergize. We hope these connections and conversations are the seeds for future partnerships, deals, friendships, and change in healthcare.
