Dave deBronkart has a well-earned reputation as an e-Patient.  An internationally recognized speaker, author, and health policy advisor, he has words of strength for patients for sure.  

In addition, he works with physicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies to help them Let Patients Help!

When most manufacturers decide to create a new product, they do market research and conduct focus groups to determine in advance what the consumers want.

In medicine, it's mostly about what the doctors want.

But the doctors are not the end-user consumers in medicine, they are talented and experienced personnel, but the end-user consumers are the patients.

Come hear what Dave believes are the many ways that Patients can help improve healthcare.
