The Society for Participatory Medicine is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with the American College of Radiology to present an important topic in healthcare at the next Learning Exchange, which will take place on April 19, 2017, 2-3PM EST.  Join us as we share tips, data and best practices that can empower you to make informed decisions as you discuss and understand the relative benefits and costs of diagnostic imaging.  Pre-registration is required and you can sign up here. Please also spread the word, as this is open to the community!

What is the Learning Exchange?

We are each individually advancing the participatory medicine movement in our day-to-day lives and interfaces with healthcare and/or our work. Understanding the work we are conducting within our individual silos can help us learn from one another, allow us to build upon ideas, forge collaborations, provide a forum for feedback and suggestions, and hopefully avoid duplication of efforts. Helpful tips and best practices we’ve adopted as we navigate the healthcare system can also be beneficial to others. The SPM Learning Exchange is a forum launched in 2016 to help us learn from one another and capture the work underway within participatory medicine under one umbrella.  If you are interested in presenting your work, best practices or tips during a future learning exchange, please submit here. If you have any questions, please contact
