Everyone Included™| Precision Medicine Initiative
How might diverse groups of health care stakeholders work together to drive co-creation and innovation in education, research, and clinical care? Our Everyone Included™ framework utilizes principles of inclusively to create a culture of health in which everyone is trusted and valued for the expertise that they bring to discussions about the future of health care. Join us to examine how these principles have been instrumental to efforts such as President Obama's Precision Medicine Initiative, and to discuss how building a culture of diversity that is centered around respect can lead to more creative and innovative solutions to the health care problems that matter most.
I was diagnosed aged 12 with the incurable bowel condition Crohn's Disease. In late 2011 I became the 11th person to undergo a small bowel transplant in the UK at The Churchill Hospital in Oxford. I started blogging about his journey through Bowel Transplant and my blog "beingapatient" has over 95,000 followers. I use social media to develop global on line peer to peer communities covering over 20,000 patients. I am also privileged to develop social media strategies around patient engagement. My passion is mentoring patients and their families and I am a published author & professional speaker. I have become the patient lead for #NHSSM, a facilitator for Centre for Patient Leadership & digital strategy advisor to The Oxford Transplant Foundation where I helped implement the first skype clinics. I am also founder of health tech start up 11Health.
