The Stanford Summit @ Medicine 2.0 officially announced

Larry Chu, MD, the organizing chair of Medicine 2.0 at Stanford, has officially announced The Stanford Summit @ Medicine 2.0:

The Stanford Summit @ Medicine 2.0 is a special forum that is designed to complement - yet be distinct from - the two-day academically-focused Medicine 2.0 conference that will take place at Stanford Sept 17-18, 2011.

Rather than focus on the presentation of research findings and scientific data, the Summit will present forecasts from luminaries - from e-patients and bloggers to executives and industry insiders - and ignite discussions about the development and use of technologies being built by academia and industry that will shape Medicine 2.0 in 2011 and beyond.

I'm excited about the Summit: So far Lee Aase, Paul Costello, Amy Tenderich, and Bryan Vartabedian, MD, have all been confirmed as participants. And, of course, more announcements are on the way.

Previously: Medicine 2.0 conference coming to Stanford next year
