Just Talking About Medicine X 2014

I attended Stanford Medicine X this weekend, a conference billed as the intersection of medicine and emerging technologies. Because the conference took up so much of my time, I didn’t have an opportunity to record a traditional podcast. Instead, I asked ePatient scholars to leave a brief comment on their experience. With a little editing magic, here you go. Enjoy!

Just Talking about Clinical Trials

This week I’m joined by Mary Rooney to discuss being the first participant in a T-Reg Clinical Trial. Don’t worry if you don’t understand what that is, as Mary does a great job of explaining the trial, how she learned about it, her results, and how others can learn about clinical trials relative to their personal interests. We also talk a bit about Mary’s diabetes diagnosis, moving to San Francisco, and her promising career as a child psychologist. Enjoy!
