The Stanford Medicine X conference is now on the horizon set to kick off at the end of September with a truly superb group of speakers and with a focus on topics our readers will find important. Keynote speakers include Esther Dyson, Michael Graves, and Susannah Fox, and others. Three dozen scheduled talks will cover emerging trends like mHealth, personal tracking technologies, and medical device design, as well as “moon shot” ideas that may rapidly improve the healing power of medicine.
We’re very happy to announce that Medgadget readers looking to attend the Stanford Medicine X conference can receive a substantial discount (56%) from standard rates. The deal is open to 20 of our readers, so if you’ve been thinking of going, this is an excellent opportunity to go on the cheap.
More from the conference organizers:
Medicine X is a catalyst for new ideas about the future of medicine and health care. The Medicine X initiative is designed to explore the potential of social media and information technology to advance the practice of medicine, improve health, and empower patients to be active participants in their own care. The “X” is meant to evoke a move beyond numbers and trends—it represents the infinite possibilities for current and future information technologies to improve health.
