The Storification of tweets continues as I recap Day 2 of Stanford Medicine X. After the rush of hosting the opening panel the day before, I figured the rest of the weekend would be a walk in the park. Here are some of the stand-out moments from the day, as told by my ability to be clever in the span of 140 characters.
(And you should too)
We still have a ways to go before being the “token patient” at a conference is a thing of the past.
That, right there, is my most important tweet of the day. Maybe even the entire conference.
The mental health component of the conference is a topic that will be revisited once I finish gathering all of my tweets. It’s a big deal, for a number of reasons, and the fact that it was put front and center in Medicine X says a lot about the conference, and where we are as a patient community. My hope is that this means we can continue to tackle difficult subjects in the months and years to follow.
Disclosure: As a member of the ePatient Advisory Board, my registration fee for Medicine X was covered by the conference. I’m writing about this stuff because I’m incredibly passionate about it, clearly – not because there’s a feudal obligation to do so.
