Conferences and Presentations
SGIM 2019 Annual Meeting
ESU team members Cati Brown-Johnson, Nadia Safaeinili, and Dani Zionts presented three posters at this year's Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) Annual Meeting, which took place in Washington, DC on May 8th-11th. They had the opportunity to present several posters regarding their work on SHC Primary Care 2.0, SHC Precision Health, and the Stanford Presence 5 project.
This year's conference theme was Courage to Lead: Equity, Engagement, and Advocacy in Turbulent Times, which focused on the increasing importance of health equity, patient engagement, and advocacy for general medicine in the current healthcare and political landscape. The work ESU team members presented on highlighted these themes -- drawing attention to the breadth of societal factors that impact the patient-provider relationship and the overall daily experience interacting with the health care system.
