Following up on last week’s call-in show, I received another batch of impressions from the Medicine X community to share with all of you. Additionally, special guest host, and love of my life Dayle hosts this week’s podcast as I share my own Medicine X experience with all of you, my dear listeners. Enjoy!

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!
Medicine X is a little over 12 hours in my rear view mirror and there’s a lot to discuss – far too much to cover in a single blog post. But since you’re here, I want to give you a rough estimate of the stuff you can expect from me over the next couple of weeks as I digest the past three days.
Sara and I will be combining powers to give impressions of the conference some time soon. I think it will provide a well-rounded picture of the weekend given the variety of expectations for the conference. Having gone to Medicine X last year, our perspectives leading up to the conference were no doubt going to be different.
At some point I’m going to start curating my tweets for a lengthy Storify post. I’ll be sure to pepper in pictures from the Medicine X Flickr account as well to paint a clear picture of what I was a part of.
And of course there will be my impressions on the panel I moderated – which was awesome.
There are a few other stand-out moments that I want to take the time to dissect for your and my pleasure. Even though I went through this last year, it’s still hard to comprehend how so much could be fit into such a short timeframe.
Disclosure: I was awarded a partial scholarship to attend Medicine X this year. All other expenses, including the remainder of the registration was paid out of pocket. In case there was any doubt, I’m writing about this stuff for me.
