Sally Okun of PatientsLikeMe, one of the first social networks for health, reveals what has emerged from years of openly sharing data: the patients' lexicon.
One of the world’s leading cancer doctors, David Agus will show that cancer isn't a disease, it's a process, a lifelong dynamic balance that goes on in all of us, the "sick" and "healthy" alike.
