Virtual Medicine 2019


Virtual Medicine 2019 is a two-day symposium that convenes the brightest minds in immersive therapeutics. I Googled each of the keynotes and found one or two articles either by them or about them. We will discuss them, plus streamed video and social media posts.

We conducted a similar event last year for Virtual Medicine 2018, which was live streamed via 360 video! Numerous attendees watched using their VR headsets and then converged to discuss in AltspaceVR. In the short video appended below, Lisa (@lisadbudzinski), chronic pain patients, relates her experience.

In the meantime, checkout our venue, the Health Systems Chat Conference & Expo Spaceship!
