Emily Bradley: ePatient Expert, Public Speaker, Patient Experience Consultant

Memphis, TN


Emily Bradley is a professional public speaker, writer, and patient activist that has been working alongside rare disease, arthritis, and chronic pain patients since 2012. Having been diagnosed with Still's Disease and Trigeminal Neuralgia in 2011, Emily began sharing her experiences on her website, Chronic Curve. Since then, she's spoken at numerous conferences and medical schools including Stanford's Medicine X, Medicine X Ed, and ScriptMed, making it her mission to bridge the gap between patient and provider. Her expertise includes: designing tools for fostering empathy in the exam room, strengthening the doctor-patient relationship, disclosure of chronic disease in medical education, pain management in the context of chronic illness, as well as the importance of peer-to-peer support for arthritis patients.

Currently, Emily works in a clinic with autoimmune and wound care patients. In her free time, you can find her indulging her coffee addiction and with a paint brush in hand.
