Join us at the 2nd annual Society for Participatory Medicine (SPM) conference, co-located with the Connected Health Conference at the World Trade Center in Boston.

The #SPM2018 conference will be unlike any other. Yes, there are presentations, yes, there are workshops, but they are focused on progress and change from the people who’ve collaborated to drive change and push for progress. This does not feel like the health care industry echo chamber.

So, What Does the Day Look Like?
The morning will be filled with inspiration from people who’ve partnered with others to make change, the true “Participatory Medicine Heroes.” People who understand the value of diversity in helping people get better.

A FEW OF OUR PARTICIPATORY MEDICINE HEROES who will be speaking include Doug Lindsay, Patti Brennan, Rasu Shrestha, Bill Marder, Sarah Krüg, Ivan Handler, Casey Quinlan, Jason Bobe, Brennen Hodge, as well as mother/daughter heroes, Angela & Grace Kennedy, and Christina & Kate Sheridan

The afternoon is your turn to get involved and to become a Participatory Medicine Hero. You will collaborate with people to develop answers to health care questions. Don’t worry, we won’t throw you out there on your own. We will have people to help stimulate your emotions and creativity.


Our goal is to design a Participatory Medicine Manifesto with the everyday heroes. YOU!WHAT IS A MANIFESTO? A manifesto is a declaration of one’s beliefs, opinions, motives, and intentions. A manifesto is a bold, sometimes rebellious, call to action. Imagine if the Participatory Medicine Manifesto was in every doctor’s office, hospital, school, workplace and even posted on your refrigerator. What will we declare and commit to as patients, caregivers, physicians, nurses, advocates and others to make Participatory Medicine real and a force in healthcare? Come and be a part of it!
