Announcing the Medicine X Wellness Room

 In Program Development

Last May, after a wonderful (and exhausting) day at Denise Silber’s Doctors 2.0 & You conference in Paris, our Medicine X group decamped to Royal Madeleine to recuperate. Our dinner discussion raised a few questions. Why are conferences so exhausting?  Wouldn’t it be nice to take a nap if you are tired or jet-lagged, yet still not miss the sessions you want to see?

We decided Medicine X should have a wellness room dedicated to enabling our e-patients and guests to recuperate from the demands of the conference. We are proud today to announce the Stanford Medicine X Wellness room.

The wellness room at Medicine X will have comfortable seating for rest and relaxation as well as special amenities for our e-patients and guests including:

  • Hot towels and heating pads (useful for joint pain)
  • Cool packs (useful for joint pain)
  • Eye masks
  • Refrigerated medication holding area
  • Discrete medication administration area and sharps container for needle disposal
  • Discrete area for nursing mothers
  • Ear buds
  • Aromatherapy
  • Dimmed lighting
  • Warm blankets
  • Relaxation imagery provided by Margaret Hansen and Salumedia.

The Medicine X Wellness room will be available to all conference guests on a first-come, first-served basis. We invite you to stop by, visit and be well!

    I attended the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Vancouver last fall and how I wished I’d had access to a Wellness Room while there! Every medical conference should have
    a. healthy food/snacks
    b. built-in walking/exercise breaks and
    c. a Wellness Room like Medicine X

    See you very soon.

    This is amazing! Stanford MedX is setting the bar in patient inclusion. Expect to see me as a frequent flyer!

    Looking forward to it!

    Fabulous – this will allow MedXers to see me in my natural state: napping.

    I am wondering if a warm blanket would be available through out the conference. I have a rare disease in which temperatures under approx 76 is life threatening. I am hoping that blankets can be provided for me if in fact air conditioning is set lower than my body can tolerate. I so appreciate Wellness rooms but hope I will be able to access this opportunity during conference attendance. Cryoglobulinemia: A rare disease. Thank you for your support.
