8:30-9:30am Surviving Medicine in the 21st Century
Location: Astor Ballroom
Speaker: Danielle Ofri, MD, attending physician at Bellevue Hospital in New York City and author of “What Patients Say, What Doctors Hear”
Description: Disillusionment in medicine feels like it’s reaching epidemic proportions. Doctors and nurses say they would never choose the field if they had to do it all over again. Medical error and burnout seem to be everywhere. But it might be too soon to close the book on the medical profession. This presentation examines the impact of disillusionment, highlighting strategies for re-engaging caregivers, combating burnout, and thriving in the new era of medicine.

10:30-11:30am Sonic Humanism
Location: Astor Ballroom
Speaker: Joel Beckerman, composer, founder of Man Made Music, and author of “The Sonic Boom”
Description: As humans, we’re wired for sound, reacting to sound faster than any other sense. But because we process sound subconsciously, it can be challenging to understand when to use sound and why—making it the most undervalued and underutilized tool in storytelling and experience design. In this presentation, Joel will unpack how “sonic humanism”—the power of sound to make our lives both richer and simpler—can be applied across fields, from curated sonic experiences and product design all the way to the sonification of data to create a future “Symphony of Healthcare.” You’ll walk away with an understanding of how to harness the power of sound to solve for business and human pain points, as well as an approach for creating more emotional, intuitive, and compelling experiences.

Groups will work together to look at public spaces through a design lens, yet from a completely different perspective, employing sound as a defining characteristic to bring specific environments to life and promote well-being.
