Innovation Centers - List of Health Care Innovation Centers

I recently interviewed Lyle Berkowitz, MD, a 42 year old internist who is program director of the Szollosi Healthcare Innovation Program at the Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University in Chicago.

Dr. Berkowitz believes innovation offers America the surest and best chance of offering better health care for patients and physicians alike. He is now touring America, visiting various innovation centers. As part of our interview, he supplied me with the following list of major centers of healthcare innovation in the U.S. with some of their contact information.

I tend not to create many remarks, but after reading a few of the responses here "Innovation Centers - List of Health Care Innovation Centers".
I actually do have a couple of questions for you if
it's allright. Is it just me or do some of the responses look like they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of all your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

First of all I would like to say terrific blog!
I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
before writing. I've had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!
