Web-Side Manner: How the Internet Saved My Life

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Is bedside manner dead? Has digital health made doctors’ patient care quite frankly, less relevant? In a world where healthcare professionals have less time to spend with their patients, social media has become the bedside resource patients are so hungry for. And can we blame them? It’s no longer an exaggeration: the internet is saving lives. But what does that mean for a patient’s journey through sickness when they can now take their health into their own hands thanks to Dr. Google and social media? Join a leading online cancer advocate, a three-time cancer caregiver and a social media rock star in a no-holds-barred conversation about how the Internet could be saving lives…and a provocative discussion about whether that’s actually a good thing. See inside their social interactions, get a first-hand glimpse of the impact that social is having on the lives of millions, and help answer today’s burning question: how do we take this phenomenon and use it to make people’s lives better?
