Upcoming events

I love speaking at and attending conferences, but can’t accept all the invitations I receive. In case it’s useful to you, as a conference organizer, speaker, or audience member: How I choose which conferences to attend.

Sept. 5-7, 2014, in Palo Alto, CA: I will be part of a panel focused on communicating the experience of illness in the digital age at Stanford Medicine X. Background: The social life of health information.

Oct. 13-14, 2014, in Oxford, England: I will speak at a symposium being held at the University of Oxford on “Experiences as Evidence: The Sciences of Subjectivity in Healthcare, Policy, and Practice.” My topic will be “Participatory research: capturing patient experience in the wild.”

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.

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.
