Larry Chu is a practicing anesthesiologist who runs the Anesthesia Informatics and Media (AIM) lab at Stanford University. He is an Associate Professor of Anesthesia on the faculty of the Stanford University School of Medicine.

He is the Executive Director of Stanford Medicine X, a conference that aims to explore how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine, improve health, and empower patients to be active participants in their own care. When not organizing conferences, Dr. Chu studies how information technologies can be used to improve medical education and collaborates with researchers in simulation and computer science at Stanford to study how cognitive aids can improve health care outcomes. Dr. Chu also has an NIH-funded clinical research laboratory where he studies opioid analgesic tolerance and physical dependence.

Katie McCurdy is a User Experience Designer & Researcher who most recently worked as a Senior Interaction Designer at R/GA in New York City.

Her goal is to help people live healthier and happier lives, and she's especially interested in working at the intersection of healthcare and data visualization to help promote behavior change. She recently visualized her medical history to better communicate her health story to a new doctor, and she hopes to eventually help other patients do the same. She holds a Masters of Science in Information with a specialization in Human-Computer Interaction from the University of Michigan School of Information, and she now lives, skis and hikes in Burlington, VT.
