Description

Combining physical activity (walking) with intellectual activity (talking) is the broad purpose of this initiative. Held during our 30 minute coffee breaks, these 20 minute walk and talk sessions will be led by our chief mascot and evangelist, Zoë Chu. She will lead walk and talk groups across the Stanford Medical School campus to the B. Gerald Cantor Rodin Sculpture Garden, the world’s largest collection of Rodin bronzes outside of Paris.

Medicine X is a relationship-based conference that is intimate and friendly enough that anyone can and should feel comfortable speaking with anyone. You should expect that you will make some new friends at Medicine X, and learn a great deal in the process!

A lover naps, chicken, walks, scritches behind the ears, and cuddles. Come see me at the Med X registration table, I love to meet new people!
