About Medicine X
MEDICINE X IS MEDICINE XPLAINED BY DOCTORS, FOR PATIENTS
Medicine X translates complicated ‘doctor speak’ into an entertaining and engaging story – so that every person regardless of age, gender, culture and condition, can have access to medical information they can understand and relate to. Working as a doctor, Medicine X’s founder realised that many patients were confused about their diagnoses, and didn’t have a proper understanding of their conditions or treatments. There was a disconnect between the language that doctors use, and what patients understand. Because of this, many people feel hopeless and anxious at a very difficult time in their lives.
This is why Medicine X was created. We believe there is a better way. We believe all patients should feel informed and empowered so they can become engaged in their personal and medical decisions.
Medicine X connects the stories of real people with artists and medical experts, to turn complex medical information into stories that people can understand and relate to.
