Iris Thiele Isip Tan

Patient Leader

Physician specializing in internal medicine/endocrinology. Medical educator. Health informatics expert. Cofounder of #HealthXPH tweet chat. TedX speaker. Healthcare and social media advocate. I blog because there are too few doctors out there and many snake oil salesmen. To protect our patients we can create content ourselves or give out what I call internet prescriptions (a curated list of websites). At, I have written posts in Filipino about diabetes, goiter etc. for my patients. These are also posted at How I started advocating on Facebook is a TedX talk here
