Medicine X, Stanford’s premier conference on emerging health-care technology and patient-centered medicine, kicks off today on campus. The three-day event opens with a keynote from Daniel Siegel, MD, clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California-Los Angeles, titled “Interpersonal Connection, Self-Awareness and Well-Being: The Art and Science of Integration in the Promotion of Health.” During the talk, he'll discuss his approach to developing a healthy mind, an integrated brain, and empathetic relationships.
The conference is being held at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge. This year’s program will spotlight the relationship between physical and mental well-being with three breakout panels. Additional presentations and panels will focus on the medical team of the future, the use of self-tracking tools to improve chronic disease patients' health, opportunities for the pharmaceutical industry to partner with patients in the drug discovery and clinical trial process, and ways to connect with “no-smartphone” patients — those who don’t have the access or resources to fully engage with health-enhancing technologies.
If you're unable to attend the conference in person, you can participate in plenary sessions virtually through a high-quality streaming webcast; registration for the Global Access Program webcast is free. We'll also be live tweeting the keynotes and other proceedings from the conference. You can follow our tweets on the @SUMedicine feed or follow the hashtag #MedX.
