November 11, 2011 | Los Angeles, CA

Speaker: Jacquelyn Morie, ICT
Host: Saban Research Institute

The Saban Symposium focused on the process of supporting the needs of youth and families as they make the transition from pediatric to adult-oriented health systems. Topics included health care reform, communication and use of social media, health economics, bench to bedside translation and measuring quality and efficiency in the health care system. Morie was part of a panel discussion and addressed ways online virtual worlds could support children with chronic diseases as they transition to adulthood.

The event honored Roberta G. Williams, professor of pediatrics at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California.
