The Day After

Medicine X is a little over 12 hours in my rear view mirror and there’s a lot to discuss – far too much to cover in a single blog post. But since you’re here, I want to give you a rough estimate of the stuff you can expect from me over the next couple of weeks as I digest the past three days.

Sara and I will be combining powers to give impressions of the conference some time soon. I think it will provide a well-rounded picture of the weekend given the variety of expectations for the conference. Having gone to Medicine X last year, our perspectives leading up to the conference were no doubt going to be different.

At some point I’m going to start curating my tweets for a lengthy Storify post. I’ll be sure to pepper in pictures from the Medicine X Flickr account as well to paint a clear picture of what I was a part of.

And of course there will be my impressions on the panel I moderated – which was awesome.

Our panel.

There are a few other stand-out moments that I want to take the time to dissect for your and my pleasure. Even though I went through this last year, it’s still hard to comprehend how so much could be fit into such a short timeframe.

(That’s me with Dr. Larry Chu, the conference director. He let me wear his Google Glasses for nearly 3 hours. That’s the kind of awesome the weekend included.)

I appreciate your patience as I try to figure out exactly what I want to say about all of this, but I think the fact that there’s so much to talk about is a good thing.

Dont forget to check out my Storify post on my Medicine X experience.

Disclosure: I was awarded a partial scholarship to attend Medicine X this year. All other expenses, including the remainder of the registration was paid out of pocket. In case there was any doubt, I’m writing about this stuff for me.
