The MGH joined Harvard University, MIT and The Boston Globe to host the fifth annual HubWeek, a yearlong civic collaboration and ideas festival. For the first time, Boston’s Seaport was home to the event, which featured panel discussions, parties and an escape room.

MGH clinicians were panelists and presenters during the Oct. 1-3 programs. “Bodies in Space” featured Jonny Kim, MD, a NASA astronaut and former MGH Emergency Medicine resident. Clinical experts from the MGH Transgender Health Program discussed pathways to “A More Inclusive Future” during a transgender health and health policy panel. The MGH Aspire Program highlighted the benefits of a neurodiverse workforce, and Think:Kids helped audiences understand how to change behavior. Another MGH program covered hopeful approaches to rare genetic diseases.
