About Medicine X 2014 – Day 2

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.

You can see the rest of my tweets, and some pretty pictures to put things in context, on Storify.

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.
