Last week, PatientsLikeMe Co-Founder Jamie Heywood had the honor of speaking at the Personalized Medicine World Conference (PMWC), a two-day event held at the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley. His presentation was entitled “Patient Driven Convergence of Clinical Discovery and Care.” In recognition of the conference’s venue as well as the role that technology plays in personalized medicine, we decided to share some of the “tweets” that Jamie’s talk generated on Twitter.
Ruby Gadelrab (@DivaBiotech) tweeted: “James Heywood, PatientsLikeMe, starts presentation with very poignant picture of his brother suffering from ALS.”
Ron Ribitzky, MD (@RonRibitzkyMD) tweeted: “James Heywood of PatientsLikeMe at PMWC: Industry develops systems that can impact if people live or die, but not giving it to them.”
Shirley Wu (@shwu) tweeted: “Heywood of PatientsLikeMe: At events like this, I often see tech searching 4 problems, not well-defined problems searching 4 solutions.”
Ribozyme (@ribozyme) tweeted: “JH PatientsLikeMe: If they (were to) add genotype data it would be a huge phenotype-genotype correlation study.”
