Wow! Loved the Stanford Med X Ed conference and the session facilitated by design thinkers Dr. Bon Ku (Thomas Jefferson University), Dr. Matthew Trowbridge (University of Virginia), and Dr. David Janka (Stanford & Harvard). Absent from the image Dr. Robert Pugliese (Thomas Jefferson University). Learned helpful tips about how to best integrate design thinking within medicine and curriculum. Fun, interactive, and illuminating. Thank you! #MedX #DesignThinking
