Happier, longer lives

FHTI mission

The Future of Health Technology Institute founded by Renata Bushko in 1996 - FHTI - is a think-tank focusing on key technologies and key challenges to the future of global healthcare. Our goal is to bring together leading thinkers in the area of newly emerging technology and health and to redefine world health strategy so that technology investments can result in less disease and better, affordable treatments. We look for most transformative inventions, ideas, and research results to make lives happier and longer and we disseminate them to maximize their positive impact e.g. 20th Anniversary World Health Strategy eBook (Ed.) Renata G. Bushko.

FHTI award

Given to those who inspire others to make the Earth a better place for human race

The award is presented at the annual Future of Health Technology Dinner during the Summit. The Future of Health Technology Award is in the form of a statue of Pegasus with crystal eyes and one ex- tra nano-diamond eye in the middle of the forehead to reflect supernatural abilities that future health technology will give to human race. In Greek mythology, Pegasus is regarded as the horse of Muses, and has always been at the service of creative minds. And so the story is told of a handsome youth who jumped on the back of a horse that unfolded the splendor of a mighty set of wings and soared towards the heavens where he can still be seen as the star constellation, Pegasus.

2016 Recipient: Dr. Xiu-Min Li
