Dr. Zubin Damania (ZDoggMD) explores the challenges of delivering compassionate health care in our severely dysfunctional medical system, while proposing collaborative ways to revitalize it. He uses humor and personal storytelling to paint an arc that begins with the idealism that first draws us into our careers and life paths, followed by the disillusionment that results when we meet a system fundamentally discordant with those hopes and dreams.

About Keynote Speaker Zubin Damania

Zubin did everything his immigrant physician parents expected of him: molecular biology and music at UC Berkeley, medical school at UCSF, residency in internal medicine at Stanford, and finally a nearly decade-long career as a hospital doctor at Stanford University Medical Center. He also routinely took out the trash and cleaned his room.

But then he did something his parents didn’t expect (or much quite like): he quit, left the Bay Area with his wife and two young daughters, and moved to Downtown Las Vegas. All to be a part of an epic experiment: Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Project.

The goal was to transform Downtown Las Vegas in record time from a series of empty lots and quirky bars to the epicenter of a burgeoning tech, arts, food, and business scene. Tony was investing $350 million of his own cash to curate this experiment, and he asked Zubin to do nothing less than rethink entirely how a 2.8 trillion dollar industry — healthcare — might look if it were just done right from scratch.

Yikes.

Luckily, he found that the answer was probably simpler than it has been made out to be. We don’t do primary care right in this country. But through good primary care, you can treat or better yet prevent most costly illnesses. So fix primary care…and you fix medicine.

With Turntable Health, that’s exactly the idea he’s pursuing. To get a better sense of all this, watch Zubin’s TEDMED talk below. And if you’re really brave, check out his alter-ego, ZDoggMD.

SSM Health Care

ZDogg (or Dr. Damania) is one of the finest, funniest, and informative speakers I’ve ever heard. Hands down the most entertaining doctor I have ever heard present. My body is still sore from the profound laughter he induced … and his message about medicine’s future and the importance of human touch can’t be emphasized enough

The Scripps Research Institute

 

Dr. Damania knocked it out of the park – possibly the best conference speaker ever and I’ve been attending conferences for over 30 years.

ZDogg was the perfect keynote for our inaugural users conference. He delivered the right mix of humor and healthcare thought leadership to both entertain and educate the medical professionals in attendance. In a word, he was ‘amaZing.

Modernizing Medicine

National SOMA Convention “This was the PERFECT opening session. For one thing, it is so important in advancement for us to put ourselves in the shoes of our donor prospects. I’m not sure it occurs to many of us that the doctors we try to get in front of may actually be miserable! Whatever our occupations may be, Zubin reminded us of the importance of embracing all of one’s natural gifts, in his case comedy, etc. as well as a love of medicine.
