CITIZEN | September 14 to September 17, 2017
Medicine X 2017 draws inspiration from the emphasis President Obama placed in his farewell address to the United States, a title that every person shares: Citizen. Medicine X 2017 will explore the way in which individuals can push health care change through citizenship; thinking through what citizenship means for all stakeholders in health care, and the ways in which all must work together to make the change that we wish to see.
Join us to meet the innovators who are disrupting health care throughout the globe. We will see the emerging technologies of today and learn how they will impact the health care we deliver and receive tomorrow. We will explore the drivers of change through organizational leadership and creative collaboration outside of health care’s traditional silos.
Be ready to use what you learn at Medicine X to create a shared vision of collaborative and participatory medicine of tomorrow.
