Designer Michael Graves confirmed as Medicine X opening keynote speaker

Here's some very exciting news from Larry Chu, MD, the executive director of the Stanford Medicine X conference:

I am so pleased to announce that the iconic American architect Michael Graves will give the opening keynote address at Stanford Medicine X on September 29, 2012. Paralyzed from the chest down due to a central nervous system infection in 2003, Graves has since used his design acumen to reshape the hospital experience by leading a functional and aesthetic transformation of hospital furnishings and equipment. I can't think of a more fitting speaker to open a conference on patient-centered innovation of health care at the intersection of emerging technologies!

The Medicine X conference will take place on Sept. 29 and 30, with a special pre-conference workshops day scheduled for Sept. 28. A list of other confirmed speakers is available on the conference website.
