Quite frankly: I doubt I’m truly worthy of something like this.
I wrote this last March after applying for an ePatient scholarship to attend Medicine X in 2012. Those of you that have stuck around since then know how that story has gone since then: attending the 2012 conference, attending and moderating a panel at the 2013 conference, a whole bunch of podcasts and a few tweets here and there about my experiences.
Being part of Medicine X has done a lot to focus the patient advocacy part of my brain. I know I’ve come a long way, and it makes me happy to openly recognize this. But this story isn’t over yet.
I’ve been added to the Medicine X ePatient Advisory Board. Cool, huh?
There’s a retreat happening in Stanford this weekend that, while I won’t able to physically attend, I will be able to participate in through the magic of things like Skype. It’s an honor to be among such passionate and enthusiastic advocates. I can’t wait to tell you more about the 2014 conference, when the time is right.
Until then, there’s always this handy, dandy Medicine X post tag that will show you all of my past posts and podcasts that came from my time in Palo Alto.
