Recently, I was honored to join a group of rockstar advocates and innovators for a fantastic discussion and experimental filming exercise! Check out this awesome first video highlighting narcolepsy, sleepiness and invisible illnesses:
When you get invited to an “experimental filming dinner party” in the Hollywood Hills where there’s no cellphone service, you may feel a little uncertain… like a character in the movie Clue showing up at the old dark mansion alone perhaps?
But when Dr. Larry Chu is the person inviting you to this dinner party, you say “Yes!” right away, and quickly cancel your plans (even though you were supposed to host a board game party with neighbors that night). Or is that just me? Lol.
Special thanks to Stanford’s Dr. Larry Chu, an amazing leader and the genius behind Stanford’s Medicine X and Everyone Included™. Dr. Chu promotes a culture of respect, honesty and thoughtful in re-designing healthcare. In addition, thank you to Paul Shepherd for his great videography and my fellow advocates and innovators Sarah, Britt, Audun and Thomas for your kindness and open minds.
Everyone Included™ is a framework for healthcare innovation, implementation and transformation based on principles of mutual respect and inclusivity.
Stanford Medicine X is a catalyst for new ideas about the future of medicine and health care. It is an academic conference and program designed for everyone. We aim to bring all healthcare stakeholders together–patients, providers, technologists, and researchers–to innovate healthcare through the thoughtful use of emerging technologies.
