Featured Speaker

Delaney Ruston, M.D.

Filmmaker, physician and speaker

Delaney Ruston, M.D. chose two career paths for one reason: to help create positive change in people’s lives. For the past 20 years, she has done just that, as a Stanford-trained primary care physician and a creator of widely acclaimed documentaries such as Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age, about helping teens navigate the digital world; Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia, about her father; and Hidden Pictures about global mental health.

Her films have aired on PBS and have been at the forefront of advocacy campaigns, including those of the World Health Organization. She has appeared on Good Morning America, NPR, and The New York Times, and has been a featured speaker at Google, The Aspen Institute, and other notable conferences and universities.
