    So incredible proud to be an e-patient scholar and contributor to this e-patient ebook. Congratulations Larry on an incredible job. Extremely excited to be meeting you all at Medicine X.

    Larry (and team) did a wonderful job putting this eBook together. Great job all involved. Regina’s artwork really sets off and complements each individual story. Can’t wait to meet these amazing people in person!

    Well done, Larry and Stanford AIM lab! This is not only a beautifully-produced book (I especially enjoyed “my” page 42!) but it contains so much useful ‘value-added’ extras (as we say in PR) such as Nick Dawson’s “Ask Paxton” piece.

    It’s also a basic primer for other universities/health care organizations who want to finally include patients in future conferences. Thanks so much for this – see you next month!

    Fantastic job putting this innovation forward! The iPad download is an excellent eBook and thank you for making it so available. As a health care provider with social media contact galore, let me agree that patients are so ready for this! Patient inclusion and participation can only move medicine forward together with doctors. Thank you for all, Larry and Stanford AIM Lab.
