Grace Leo is a paediatric registrar who has been involved in the FOAMed community for the last 8 years and forms part of the Don’t Forget The Bubbles and SMACC conference teams. Through her journey she’s been able to realise dreams she hadn’t even imagined possible and has become an advocate for the importance of visual communication in medical education talks and research.  In this talk, Grace share’s her personal journey in becoming engaged in FOAMed as well as the beauty of finding her own place to call home through the power of personal learning networks and a willingness to say yes. Grace mentions some of the presentation skills workshops she runs (yes there’s one for DFTB20 planned in the works), sketchnotes (at @gracie_leo or collated @doodlemedicine) and her presentation skills blog can be found at






This talk was recorded live at DFTB19 in London, England. With the theme of  “The Journey” we wanted to consider the journeys our patients and their families go on, both metaphorical and literal. DFTB20 will be held in Brisbane, Australia.
