Medicine X | ED happening this weekend

MedX balloons2 - by Angela GarganoWe've been talking here for weeks about Medicine X | ED, and it's finally happening: This weekend, a wide range of stakeholders will gather on campus for the popular academic conference. 

Among the program highlights: Keynote presentations from Neha Sangwan, MD, a developer of a program she calls “self-care in health care,” and Erik Brodt, MD, who’s using digital media storytelling to inspire American Indian youth to enter the health professions; and panels on such topics as diversity and inclusivity in education and improving physician wellness.

If you can't be here and have an interest in the future of health-care education, no problem: You can watch online or read our coverage of the conference here on Scope. We’ll also be live tweeting some of the keynotes and other proceedings; you can follow our tweets on the @StanfordMed feed or by using the #MedX hashtag.
