Dr. Larry Chu and the Stanford Medicine X crew just dropped a major bomb on the already still-hyped up ePatient community. Applications for the 2015 ePatient Scholar program opened yesterday night.
I am nowhere near completing the process of recapping the 2014 event, nowhere near recovering from the jet-lag, euphoria, and ideas for action whirring […]
I’ve had a complicated relationship with MedX. Earlier, I thought it was just this year, the stress of having to get so much done, learning so much on the fly, feeling (perhaps unfairly on my part) not as much support as I needed. I was first in a difficult living situation and then dealing with […]
It feels like I’ve been preparing for this for ages, so it’s a little hard to believe that Stanford Medicine X is just a few days away! No longer a newbie, I’m feeling the pressure in different ways this year, but also know firsthand just how inspiring the event can be. I’ve […]
People give me weird looks when I tell them that one of my hobbies is attending health conferences. Health care needs all of us at the table – doctors, patients, nurses, payers, researchers, caregivers, elected officials, developers… We are not going to create real solutions from inside silos – we need to view and understand […]

Before the internet, my favorite part of being a patient was interacting with other patients in the hallways of CCFA education presentation events. More than hearing about the […]
Prior to the conference, I didn’t know many people going to Medicine X. Because I was staying with friends to save money, I’d miss out on some hotel-based bonding. Networking makes me break out in hives. What the heck was I doing flying across the country to hang out with total strangers?
I wasn’t expecting […]
A week ago I was lucky enough to be in the front row while Michael Graves gave his keynote (watch here) at Stanford’s Medicine X 2012 conference. Months earlier, I had used Mr. Graves (along with Chuck Close) as an example in my scholarship application essay, without realizing he was going to be […]
