This year will include a keynote from Dr. BJ Miller, an American physician, author, storyteller, burn survivor, and pre-eminent thought leader on patient-centered care. His story is also the main topic of Netflix’s Academy Award-nominated short documentary,End Game. Dr. Miller will share his journey as a survivor and the impact it’s had on his life. His message will explore how to own your limitations and find meaning in every day through creativity, a sense of belonging, and connection.
