Stanford Medicine X, a conference on emerging technology and patient-centered medicine, opens today. Things kick off with a keynote address at 8:15 AM Pacific time on the evolving role of the engaged patient by Marion O'Connor, lead specialist dietician at Oxford University Hospitals, NHS Trust, and ePatient Michael Seres.
Taking place now through Sunday, the conference will be held at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge. This year's Medicine X core missions include building better health care through thoughtful technological innovation, and increased collaboration between doctors, researchers, designers and patients. Check out the schedule for information on speaker events, master classes, panel discussions and more.
Those unable to attend the conference in person can participate in select sessions virtually through a high-quality streaming webcast; Registration for the Global Access Program webcast is free. We'll also be live tweeting the talk by O'Connor and Seres, tomorrow's keynote speech from high-school student and cancer researcher Jack Andraka, and other proceedings from the conference.
