Join the first Great Challenges live event on Nov. 15th

For the past two months, we’ve been holding an online conversation with industry, advocacy, and academic leaders — and the public — about health and medicine’s Great Challenges. Next week, we’re going live with our first Googe + Hangout.


Join to watch a moderated talk on The Role of the Patient: What are the opportunities, and the pitfalls, of greater patient engagement? Are patients fully aware of their options, and their rights?  Do doctors know that, and acknowledge it? How can both parties work more effectively with the tools now available, from online health information to electronic medical records?


A team of experts will discuss all this and more on Thursday, November 15th, from 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm EST.  They are:

Ted Eytan
Director, The Permanente Federation, LLC at Kaiser Permanente
Theresa Brown
Oncology Nurse and New York Times Columnist
Amy Berman
Senior Program Officer, The John A. Hartford Foundation
Rebecca Burkholder
Vice President of Health Policy, National Consumers League
Alexandra Drane
Founder, Chief Visionary Officer and Chair of the Board, Eliza Corporation
