Can't be at Stanford for Health Matters? Follow along on social media

Health Matters - smallThis Saturday, Stanford Medicine is hosting Health Matters, a free community event that explores the latest advancements in medicine and health. Open to the public, Health Matters will feature sessions with experts on a wide range of topics, including big data, cancer risk factors, dementia, sleep, mental health, brain injury and more. Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, PhD, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the New York Time’s bestseller The Emperor of All Maladies, will be capping off the event with a talk called “Dethroning the Emperor: the Genome, New Medicine, and Future of Cancer.”

If you’re not able to attend the family-friendly event in person, you can still experience it virtually by following @StanfordHealth on Twitter. Conference organizers will be capturing much of the day on social media by live-tweeting sessions, sharing posts and photos from attendees, and taking questions for the panelists. (If you have questions, tweet them to @StanfordHealth with the hashtag #HealthMatters.) Organizers are also encouraging readers to share on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram thoughts and photos of how their family stays healthy; posts with the hashtag #HealthMatters will appear on the event’s Tint page.
