Stanford Medicine X conference opens today

The first-ever Medicine X conference kicks off at Stanford this morning with a keynote address from Susannah Fox, associate director of digital strategy at the Pew Internet & American Life Project.

The conference, which is taking place at the School of Medicine's Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge today through Sunday, focuses on how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine, improve health and empower patients. Here’s a look at the schedule for the event.

Those unable to attend the conference in person can participate virtually through a high-quality streaming webcast. Registration for the webcast is free.

Throughout the weekend, we’ll be live tweeting the keynote talks by Fox, renowned architect and designer Michael Graves, and Esther Dyson, CEO of EDVentures Holdings, as well as proceedings from the conference. You can follow the tweets on the @SUMedicine feed or follow the hashtag #med2.
