by Deb Gordon, Janice McCallum, Danny Sands On Tuesday, April 30, a roomful of health care insiders enjoyed a series of rapid-fire, TED-esque talks, interviews, and panels by leading health care voices at The Atlantic Summit on Health Care (#AtlanticPulse).

I’m anxious. I react. I manage or I don’t. I can accept, deny, adapt. I suffer, I advocate, I overcome. Maybe it’s my parent’s health or my partner’s or my child’...
