What happens when Stanford brings together leading patients, researchers, doctors and silicon valley minds? Join some of 2012’s Medicine X ePatient scholars for a live Google Hangout and Tweet Chat to find out.

On March 6th, 2013, Chris Snider, 2012 ePatient Scholar and host of the Just Talking podcast, will moderate a panel discussion and live chat. The conversation will take place live in a google hangout and on twitter.

The goal of the conversation is to peel back the curtain on the Medicine X ePatient program. What are ePatients, who should apply, how does the application process work? What is it like to attend? How can one manage health concerns while at the conference? And, if you have questions of your own, the panel will be glad to address them.

The panel will also discuss a new track, being launched at Medicine X 2013: the Leadership Track.

The Leadership Track provides a unique opportunity for ePatients to attend Stanford Medicine X and further develop the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to become the next generation of ePatient leaders.
