Wordgames at #JPM16: What do you think of when someone says baby boomers? Chronic disease?

Wordgames at the JP Morgan Healthcare conference. Who said what?

Against the backdrop of the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference Evercore Senior Managing Director Matthew McAskin and Meghan Fitzgerald of Cardinal Health let their hair down and engaged in some wordgames as part of a fireside chat at the StartUp Health’s Festival.

McAskin asked Fitzgerald to say what she thought of when certain names and words were mentioned. Here’s how most of it went:

Baby boomers? Chronic disease. After some groans from the audience, she changed that to skinny jeans.

CVS Health? No smoking

Union Square? Surge pricing
Jim Harbaugh (University of Michigan coach)? Bad khakis
McAskin was a sport and responded to a couple of Fitzgerald’s questions:
The Powerball drawing: Red 19
Good presidential candidate? Make America great! McAskin sounded a bit sarcastic here, but I could be wrong.
See if that doesn’t inspire some #JPM16 wordgames of your own.
