One of the new content streams at ICEEfest 2016, ICEEhealth continues to develop, this time globally. Lorena Macnaughtan, ICEEhealth Event Director, is going to be present at two of the most prestigious health conferences this fall.
Back at the Medicine X Stanford
After her presentation from last year, when she talked about the reasons why Digital Health evolves with and around the empowered patient, Lorena will now co-host a workshop at Medicine X Stanford, next to Pepita Stringer.
My Genomic Life (a.k.a. the G Files) aims to engage everybody via a combination of activities, in order to elicit reflection, critique, or debate.
“What do you want for your genomic life?”, is the question that will be explored in this workshop. Plus that territory of people’s basic perceptions related to the highly complex genomic information.
”This conference has immediately inspired a change in career trajectory and lit a fire within me to learn how I can build and design patient-centered health care solutions”, Matthew Krey/ GlaxoSmithKlein Future Leaders Program
Medicine X 2015 in numbers:
- 5500000 unique people reached through social media
- 703 delegates
- 300 organizations represented
- 251 presentations
- 69 countries represented

Back in Europe at Giant Health Event
Between November 16th to 19th, London will host Giant Health Event – “a conference focused on bringing ideas, tech & people together both within and outside the health space”.
- Giant is a key event within Health Tech Week (14-21 November)
- Giant showcases leading technologies and accelerates innovation within a highly creative, interdisciplinary and collaborative environment.
This time, Lorena will lead a session involving patients, clinical innovators, psychologists, data experts, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders to look at how to get the most out of collaborations to shape the future of health and facilitate business model innovation.
This is Giant Health Programme, a three-day professional conference and one-day consumer fair.
