The Leana Wen keynotes expand on Wen's campaign to provide patients with full disclosure to their healthcare. Wen's mission is to help create a more comfortable and trusting environment between patients and doctors. Many of her topics explore ways to correct issues in healthcare, medical and pharmaceuticals.
Wen is a radical doctor that is working to render doctors much more transparent to their patients. Currently doctors are not required to disclose if they are paid sponsors for pharmaceutical companies, suggesting a particular treatment based on personal bias or withholding patient information. Despite the backlash Wen has received, hundreds have joined her cause for transparency in healthcare. Currently Wen is a practicing doctor and professor. She is also the author of a novel titled 'When Doctors Don't Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests' that aims to help patients get the proper attention they need from their doctors.
The Leana Wen keynotes will help educate individuals on healthcare rights.
