On May 6, 2015 Liza Bernstein, Stanford Medicine X | LA region community organizer launched our first pop-up event outside of the San Francisco bay area. Joined by Karten Design and held at Maker City LA, a crowd of over 100 joined us for an evening devoted to a key aspect of healthcare innovation: Patient-centered design.
The evening kicked off with an Ignite! talk from a local Medicine X ePatient Scholar Nikki Estañol, followed by a presentation from Stuart Karten, founder of Karten Design, and a panel discussion with Britt Johnson, alumni of the Medicine X IDEO Design Challenge. The evening was capped off by special guest appearances from Larry Chu, MD, Executive Director of Medicine X and Zoë Chu, MedX mascot, who flew in from Stanford to join the event.
Our pop-up events are a new initiative to bring Medicine X to new communities in different regions throughout the world. These live events are hosted by Stanford Medicine X ePatient Scholar alumni and community organizers.
Join our Los Angeles region meet-up group to stay informed of future pop-up events. Medicine X photographer Christopher Kern was also on site to capture the fun. You can view his photos from the event here.
