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!

Zoe Chu is a lover of naps, chicken, walks, scritches behind the ears, and cuddles. Come see her at the Medicine X registration table, she loves to meet new people!

For Rachel B. Stork Stoltz, metalsmithing has changed from a hobby to a significant part of her life. As a trained medical illustrator, her work involves the intersection of art and anatomy. Starting as merely anatomical forms representing her love for anatomy, her metalwork has evolved into inspirational pieces for patients with chronic disease as well as awareness designs. These people and patients are where she gathers inspiration. Using items such as surgical staples from a lung transplant, she creates custom pieces with deep personal meaning and narrative. They may commemorate a life-changing event, a journey or honor those lost. Through her work she gives a visual voice to invisible illnesses. She continues to learn traditional and new metalsmithing techniques to incorporate into and strengthen her work. While her illustrations and professional work before this had value, this new adventure adds a deeper level of meaning and fulfillment to her life.
