Stanford’s Medicine X | ED, in pictures


There was a flurry of excitement at Stanford's medical school last weekend, when hundreds of visitors flocked to campus for the Medicine X | ED conference. There's tons of coverage of the talks available, and I think the photos above (including one of a symbolic feather and one of Zoe Chu,  the official four-legged Med X mascot) nicely capture the spirit of the two-day event.
