Medicine and Technology Symposium
I was invited to speak at the Medicine and Technology Symposium organized by the Turkish Medical Students’ International Committee. It was a talk from a patient’s point of view, built on my Brain Issues project, about the merits of self-tracking and information visualization in clinical medicine. I got lots of questions and attention afterwards, especially from the students; they were saying that this was the best case presentation they had seen, and information visualization seems like a great improvement that they would want to use in their practice. We talked about possible automated systems that generate these visuals from the medical data being normally kept as numbers in hospital databases. This feedback coming directly from future health professionals made me very happy, and gave me motivation to keep Brain Issues going as an example for this line of thinking.
