Speaking

Picture of Dr. Miron-Shatz giving a talk.

Dr. Miron-Shatz speaks to wide audiences, from physicians, to laypersons, to entrepreneurs, to academics. The goal is always the same: to point out the gaps where people—patients and sometimes physicians—are expected to take charge of their health and medical decision-making, but lack the tools to do so. With her vast industry and research experience, she offers solutions for bridging these gaps.

She is uniquely positioned to talk about the various aspects of what it takes to engage people in decision making around their medical condition, from risk communication to how to make people connect with and use digital health, from the ethical implications of fertility treatments, to why patients need their doctors to care.

Her worldview is exceptionally humanistic, inspiring, and relentlessly practical.

Dr. Miron-Shatz is available for select virtual and in-person speaking engagements. To inquire about an event, please contact Cosimo Turrturro (from Speakers Associates), at cosimo@speakersassociates.com

Behavioral Economics for Healthy Living.
 You, your friends, and your employees want to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If only it was so easy. Prof. Miron-Shatz uses tricks from psychology and behavioral economics to give audiences actionable advice to live happier and healthier lives. Audiences will walk away empowered to reframe their choices, harness the power of positive decision-making, and solidify lifelong healthy habits.

Truly Empowering Your Customers. Patients are now both healthcare consumers who choose their care, as well as individuals who rely on the medical system for important decisions regarding their health. Many are confused over their choices, insecure about asking questions of professionals, and fearful about their diagnosis and course of treatment. Organizations want patients to feel empowered even while at their most vulnerable. In this talk, Prof. Miron-Shatz coaches audiences and leaders on how to create environments that provide much-needed clarity for their own consumers.

From Vision to Practice: Leadership Lessons that Transcend Healthcare. How can you transform your business, improve service, increase employee satisfaction and bottom lines? Great leaders do this in medicine – where life and death are at stake, price tags are high, customers are vulnerable, and employees are one of the most valuable assets, but also prone to burnout and turnover. Prof. Miron-Shatz shows you how to achieve all these. Drawing correlations between the medical profession and the business world, Dr. Miron-Shatz imparts practical and impactful lessons for today’s leaders.

Creating Better Technology — with Psychology. You have endless computing power but the technological solutions you create often fail to meet your expectations. Apps and gadgets, like glucometers and Fitbits produce infinite new data that most users don’t know how to take advantage of. Prof. Miron-Shatz to the rescue. Based on her ample research and industry experience, she will show you how to create digital services that people will connect with, drive value from, and use over time.

Achieving Happiness. Everybody wants to be happy, but how is this done? In this revelatory talk, she shares her original work on how the internal landscape of our thoughts and peak and low moments throughout our days influences our happiness. Audiences will leave with a fresh new perspective of a deeply personal and familiar emotion, and a new skillset for achieving the lasting happiness they desire in life.

Creating a Medical Culture of Satisfaction, Health, and Success. In this talk tailored to healthcare leaders, Dr. Miron-Shatz applies her expertise to the most pressing questions faced by the medical community—How can healthcare organizations step up and cater to patients’ and physicians’ needs while still benefitting their own bottom lines? As a consultant to top pharmaceutical companies, health advertisers, digital health providers, and medical device companies, Dr. Miron-Shatz shares her relatable and actionable model for humanizing healthcare, increasing satisfaction for all, and improving organizational performance.

Let’s Talk about Death and Celebrate Life. We pride ourselves on having control over our lives. And yet, everyone avoids ‘the talk’ – the one on end-of-life preferences. This deprives us of control over our death and of receiving the care we would like. Dr. Miron-Shatz suggests a new approach – TAD (Talk About Death) routinely to break the taboo and build up practice. This talk is an unexpected, fascinating journey into the middle ages, movies, poems, and our souls.
