Dates announced for 2013 Medicine X conference

This September, the Medicine X conference returns to Stanford. Larry Chu, MD, executive director of the conference, announced on the Medicine X blog that the event will be held September 27-29 at the medical school's Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge.

Medicine X explores how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine, improve health and empower patients - and last year's event was a high-energy showcase of innovative ideas. The event's video archive offers a sampling of the keynote speeches and presentations from the 2012 program.

More news about Stanford Medicine X is available in the Medicine X category.
