2013 Stanford Medicine X ePatient Selections Announced

I’m so proud to announce selections for the 2013 Stanford Medicine X ePatient Scholars program. The process of selection was a lengthy one that involved the participation of the entire 2013 Stanford Medicine X ePatient Advisory Panel (Liza Bernstein, Nick Dawson, Britt Johnson, Sarah Kucharski) as well as two former ePatient scholars who will return this year as Stanford Medicine X ePatient Mentors (Sean Ahrens and Hugo Campos). Over the course of the next few weeks we will announce ePatient travel awards and the assignment of scholars to our program tracks.

Please note that in the event some of the selected ePatients cannot attend the conference (e.g. due to health reasons), we may allow candidates on our waiting list to take their place or elect to leave a position unfilled if a suitable candidate cannot be found. Please also note that ePatient advisory panel members are selected by the Executive Director to be included in the ePatient Scholar program.

    SO delighted to be on this list. I’m honored, gleeful, and thoughtful all at once. This isn’t about me, or us. It’s what we can help bring into being for others. Looking forward to September!!

  • Deborah Boyce

    To say I am thrilled is an understatement! Words cannot adequately capture or express the excitement I’m feeling right now. I look forward to being inspired and experiencing the synergistic magic of Stanford Medicine X. An added plus will be renewing friendships and meeting face2face with people I’ve known virtually for quite some time. A sincere thank you to Larry, the 2013 Stanford Medicine X ePatient Advisory Panel and Mentors, and the philanthropic supporters for this opportunity!

  • Jamia Crockett

    You can imagine my surprise at 4:30 AM this morning as I was cleaning up my 2 year old (potty training begins today!) and I saw flashing lights from my phone. I saw that there was a message from Larry Chu, MD, MS and I gulped…I figured it was a “thank you for applying but we have selected other candidates” courtesy email but it wasn’t!

    I am thrilled and honored to part of such an innovative and forward-thinking group of individuals who see healthcare differently!

    I look forward to meeting you all In September!

  • Joseph Riffe

    And Double Happiness: I get to meet insanely smart and forward thinking peeps and tweeps IRL – so many who’ve opened my mind – including Larry, Hugo, Sean, Liza Nick, Britt and Sarah.

    Congratulations to all on this excellent list! It is also super to see how many of those named above are “peeps” from @s4pm (participatorymedicine.org). We list-mates will be looking forward to hearing much more about it all from all of you!
