The meeting was held at Stanford University, jointly hosted by Stanford, UCSF and Highland Hospital. The conference featured -- among a cavalcade of great talks and cutting edge science -- a panel on Social EM. The panel was moderated by Dr. Harrison Alter, Executive Director of the Levitt Center, and highlighted Dr. Suzanne Lippert of Stanford EM and Kaiser Oakland, Dr. Hemal Kanzaria and Dr. Siavash Sarlati, both of UCSF. The structure of the panel focused on the ecologic model, exploring examples of bedside, systems and population applications of Social EM.
