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.
