Announcing Patient Scholarship Opportunities to Attend The patient experience symposium May 1-3 in Boston

Continuing our new adventures with #WTFix in 2019, we’re proud to announce that we’ll be a sponsor of the upcoming Patient Experience Forum, taking place in Boston from May 1-3, 2019, so that the event can offer two patient scholarships!

The Patient Experience Symposium echoes a lot of what What’s the Fix? is all about, but we want to help take it a step further. To make sure there are not only patient stories shared on stage, our scholarship sponsorship will ensure there are two patients in the audience to share their experience and insights with those who are in positions to make change: health system executives, patient experience leaders and health care providers.

We’re also excited to support this event because we’ll be able to catch up with a lot of familiar #WTFix faces, including ePatient Dave deBronkart, Danny Sands and Doug Lindsay! It’s going to be a great event and we are looking forward to helping support two deserving individuals. To learn more about the sponsorship, click here.
