3M partners with Nobel Media for global event focused on health and wellbeing
Nov 13, 2019

Nobel Laureates and world-leading thinkers recently gathered in Berlin to discuss the topic of health and wellbeing as part of a worldwide series called Nobel Prize Dialogue organized by Nobel Media.

3M is an international partner of Nobel Media and the two entities have collaborated since 2016 to hold global, inspirational events that have brought Nobel laureates to all corners of the world.

The event on Nov. 8, titled ‘Towards Health,’ assembled laureates, policy makers, scientists and thought leaders to host an open dialogue about the future of health in our society with an aim to deepen the conversation between scientific communities and the general public.

“Advancing the health of our global population is a cornerstone issue for us at 3M,” said Denise Rutherford, 3M’s senior vice president for corporate affairs. “For decades, 3M has worked side-by-side with health care professionals to create innovative solutions and provide a platform for continuing education through our 3M Health Care Academy. The physical and mental wellbeing of our society requires an on-going dialogue between scientific disciplines, medical professionals, governments and corporations.

In 2018, 3M’s Health Care business group generated $7 billion in global sales and the 3M Health Care Academy engaged with nearly 500,000 medical professionals in more than 30 countries. The academy is an online portal that provides access to professional training resources and free continuing education courses that help deepen expertise and improve patient care. 

“We are committed to strengthening and enriching the dialogue between our scientific community and the general public,” said Kourosh Motalebi, head of 3M’s global strategic partnerships. “Our collaboration with Nobel Media will continue to inspire, educate and engage on the global issues of our time.”

The event was made available for public streaming on YouTube and can be viewed here.
