This fall, Stanford Medicine X kicks off a new series of conferences designed to foster innovative change in health care. This limited series event is called Medicine X | CHANGE and the first of the set of conferences will take place September 20-22 at Stanford Medicine's Li Ka Shing Center for Learning.
Registration is now open for this three-day event. Special guests, to name a few, include behavior scientist Grace Anne Dorney Koppel and journalist Ted Koppel who will give a keynote address on their mission to raise awareness and improve the quality of life for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, known as COPD.
In a masterclass session, Mona Siddiqui, MD, chief data officer of the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, will teach attendees to use data to lead organizational change. And Simon Denegri, of the National Institute for Health Research, will co-present the Everyone Included™ keynote plenary session.
How is the CHANGE event different from previous Medicine X conferences? This new event is part of the evolution of Stanford Medicine X, Larry Chu, MD, executive director for Medicine X, explains in the video below.
"So many of the things we know or see are defined by transformation or change. Life is defined by change, and to live our best lives humankind moves forward by pushing ourselves toward change, and our world usually ends up a better place because of it."
