The panel's four speakers were selected to present a range of academic, professional and activist views on the intersection and impact of capitalism upon modern healthcare and global well-being.

Support is on the rise for young, local, social entrepreneurs with fresh ideas and innovative projects. More than $3000 was raised in support of Sydney-based social entrepreneurs in a crowd-funding campaign.
