Friday – The Great Challenges
Through out the week, I had the utmost pleasure and privilege to be working The Great Challenges team. Now, if you follow me on Twitter (@a_cup_a_day) you’ve seen my feed explode over the past months on Great Challenge Days. The 20 Great Challenges are the issues that the delegates from TED MED 2012 chose as the issues most influential in health care. Watch the past google hangouts and read more about them here.
As this year’s Great Challenge Scholar, I worked with an incredible team to put together an afternoon of collaboration and exploration as delegates met at GW to discuss the individual issues. Earlier in the week, I spoke about my opportunity to work as a graphic facilitator with the Discovery Doodling team. I had an amazing time watching the professional artists synthesize thoughts in to pictures and got to try my hand at it today on the “Managing Chronic Diseases” team.
