You have attended and spoken at Doctors 2.0, why?
Kerri: The patient is so often talked about at medical conferences, but so rarely heard. I was honored that Denise Silber asked me to give one of the keynotes at Doctors 2.0 in 2013, because it gave me the chance to raise the voice of the patient, and to highlight how the diabetes online community works as a tide to raise all PWD (person with diabetes) boats.
Marie: The invitation to speak at Doctors 2.0 last year was a great honour for me. I already knew what an innovative and dynamic conference it would be, having followed along with it via Twitter for the previous two years. Not only did I get a chance to share my story at the conference, I also enjoyed meeting face- to-face those I had come to know online. I came away with new perspectives and ideas and stronger ties to many of my peers.
