This year, Health and Wellness is well represented in Boston’s WIN Lab as four of the twenty three incoming WINners are concentrated in this category. Of the Health and Wellness WINners, there are several entrepreneurs developing online networks to connect you with a team who wants to help you get, and stay, healthy, while other WINners are looking to improve the quality of elders’ independence. Either way, these WINners are striving toward a better, healthier, future for you and your loved ones. Boston’s 2017 Health and Wellness WINners are:
