Pat Mastors has been quoted in USA Today for having an “all hands on deck- including patients” approach to reducing medical harm, which is evident in the fact that she has successfully helped to pass two patient safety laws in Rhode Island while also serving as a patient/family advisor to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Partnership for Patients. Just last year, Pat was faced with her daughter’s diagnosis of a rare and paralyzing nerve disorder, Guillain-Barre Syndrome. With a determined and empowered partnership with her care providers, Pat’s daughter’s length of stay in the hospital was less than one third the average for her diagnosis and treatment, and her rate of recovery has been exceptional.
Cindy Gallop disrupts the hushed discussion of unmentionable topics by loudly yet calmly, and consciously creating platforms for their development and expression. In 2010 Cindy founded IfWeRanTheWorld.com, co-action marketing software that builds action branding for companies and their consumers. The year before, Cindy released MakeLoveNotPorn.com – ‘Pro-sex. Pro-porn. Pro-knowing the difference’, the success of which led to the launch last year with co-founder UX Lead Oonie Chase and CTO Corey Innis of MakeLoveNotPorn.tv, a crowdsourced #realworldsex videosharing platform. Joining HxRefactored, we are thrilled to have Cindy passionately keynote on how design can create connected and meaningful relationships. Hot wax may or may not be involved.
