Join us here on Tuesday, December 10 at 8:30 pm ET | 7:30 pm CT | 5:30 pm PT for a live Google Hangout and Tweet Chat with a group of Stanford Medicine X ePatient alumni to learn about their experiences participating in our 2013 conference. We’ll broadcast the hangout via Google+. You can bookmark this page and return here on December 10th to watch live.
About the hangout
Do you consider yourself an epatient—empowered, engaged in your care, and equipped with knowledge about your condition? Then Stanford Medicine X is for you. In this hangout, we’re specifically reaching out to ePatients. We’d love to share your story of empowerment at the next Medicine X (September 2014). Don’t miss this live conversation if you’d like to learn more about the program, wonder what you might get out of the experience, or how to apply! Learn more about our 2014 Stanford Medicine X ePatient scholarship program.
