Last year, as part of our efforts to amplify the patient voice among health care industry leaders, we asked the organizers of the Patient Experience Symposium if they would be interested in partnering with us to create a different kind of sponsorship for their event. Our idea was simple: Let us fund scholarships for two patients to be part the conference.
We believe patients should always be included in the conversations at health care conferences – they are who we serve and bring a variety of unique questions and opinions that can shift the typical discussion that may otherwise occur between health care “insiders.”
The Patient Experience Symposium was more than happy to work with us, and we were thrilled to welcome Lisa Deck (@lbdeck) and Emily McIntosh (@mcintose) to Boston in May 2019 to attend the event. Their presence was such a success that we decided to once again sponsor the Patient Experience Symposium to offer two patient scholarships. Below are a few more details and we encourage you to apply.
What’s included with the scholarship?
Two individuals will be selected to receive a full access pass to the conference, now taking place September 30 – October 2 in Boston, MA, as well as a $1,200 reimbursement to cover travel expenses.
Recipients will be selected using the following criteria:
– Need of support to attend the event
– Current and past work toward driving change in health care
– Passion to drive change in health care
– Personal health care story
– Potential to gain personally and professionally from attending the conference
