Pew Internet's Susannah Fox to deliver closing keynote at Medicine 2.0

Here's some very exciting news from Larry Chu, MD, about the closing keynote at the Medicine 2.0 conference at Stanford:

I am delighted to confirm Ms. Susannah Fox as the closing Keynote speaker at the Stanford Medicine 2.0 Congress. Ms. Fox will give her address on Sunday September 18, 2011 on the closing session of the Fourth World Congress on Social Media and Web 2.0 in Health, Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

Susannah Fox is the Associate Director of Digital Strategy at the Pew Internet & American Life Project, a non-profit "fact tank" sponsored by the non-partisan Pew Research Center. She studies the cultural shifts taking place at the intersection of health care and technology.

I've long been a fan of Fox's research, and I'm very happy that she will be joining us. If you're not familiar with her work, a good example is her Mobile Health 2010 report. A recent talk is above.
