Aug. 5, 2015, in New Orleans, LA: I will be the opening keynote speaker at the annual meeting of the American Association of Diabetes Educators.

Some past appearances:

July 1, 2014, on the island of Gotland, Sweden: I spoke at an event sponsored by Dagens Samhälle and Telia, held during Almedalen, a week-long celebration of open debate about social issues. The video of my talk is below.

Oct. 18, 2013 – I spoke at a symposium entitled, “Social Media and Medicine: Perfect Match or Perfect Storm?” sponsored by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. My post about it: How do we know that social media is important to health care?

Sept. 30-Oct. 1, 2013 – I spoke twice at Health 2.0: first about the New Environment for Better Health Care Decisions and then the next day about caregivers, on the Unmentionables panel.

Sept. 29, 2013 – I spoke at Stanford Medicine X on the topic of participatory research (and, in this video, about #whatifhc).

July 8, 2013 – I spoke at Salud 2.0 Euskadi in Bilbao (and I’ve written about it here and here).

Here is my most recent keynote (skip ahead to minute 7 if you don’t speak Swedish):

And here is an example of a shorter speech, delivered at Health 2.0 in Santa Clara, CA:

One thought on “Upcoming events

  1. Great to see your list Susannah, I’ve been in the process of making mine as well. I was hoping to attend Medicine X, but didn’t get a patient scholarship, so I’ll try again next year. For rare disease, I found the World Orphan Drug Congress especially helpful and they are working to integrate the patient voice much more. Also, Rare Disease Day events on the hill was a great place to network and make our voice heard, but less of a conference like setting.
