This fall, the School of Medicine will host Stanford Medicine X, a new conference exploring how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine, improve health and empower patients. Today, organizers announced that they have secured a gift from Alliance Health Networks to provide scholarships for ePatients to attend the conference, which will be held on Sept. 28-30.
More than just attending the conference, our program offers four unique tracks to engage and involve ePatients in the Medicine X conference as bloggers, tweeters, designers and even speakers! A limited number of awards will also be available to fund patient travel to Medicine X through a gift from the Kadry Foundation.
My friend Amy Tenderich, vice president and chief patient advocate at Alliance Health Networks, shares my enthusiasm for the program. She says: “Alliance Health is excited to be working alongside the Stanford Medicine X team to help empower patients. Medicine X promises to become a leading platform for patient-centered care, patient-centered design, and new frontiers in patient advocacy using social media.”
The initiative is called the the Medicine X | Alliance Health ePatient Scholarship Program. Applications will open Feb. 15 and close on March 15. For details on how to apply and other information, visit the program pages.
