PatientsLikeMe Co-Founder Jamie Heywood at the Personalized Medicine World Conference

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.
