Health Activist Challenges!

I had hoped to write more this month.  I had hopes of using the daily prompts for the 2013 WEGO Health "Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge" to inspire me to post/write more.  Instead, I was busy actually being a Health Activist! (Isn't that essentially what WEGO Health hopes?)  Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here are some glimpses into what my Health Activists activities during April 2013 looked like...

This is the "doodle" for the "Managing Chronic Diseases Better"--one of The 20 Great Challenges facing Health and Medicine addressed at TEDMED 2013.  I was invited to be a Social Media Narrator and Delegate to TEDMED!

Wearing Karen Kane at The Kennedy Center for TEDMED 2013!

As seen at TEDMED 2013: Richard Simmons and me, connecting the Great Challenges! 

Here is a screen grab of me on the TEDMEDLive Stream!  I proudly shared how Richard @TheWeightSaint Simmons is helping change my life.

This is what the screen and TEDMED stage looked like...

Exercising w/ Richard Simmons and Surgeon General Regina Benjamin on stage at The Kennedy Center during TEDMED.  (I'm behind Dr. Benjamin on the left.)

At the Air and Space Museum I met, hugged and posed with the Surgeon General!

Follow @SGRegina on Twitter.  

Another Regina...@ReginaHolliday helped make me TEDMED better because TEDMED 2013 was the first chance to I had to wear my "The Walking Gallery" to a health and medical conference.

The Hive at TEDMED was buzzing through TEDMED 2013!

My TEDMED "Six Word Story" in The Hive!

The "Smart Phone Physical" started with a look inside my ear.  Everything a doctor would need to give you a physical and track your body can be done w/ a Smart Phone!

A "virtual" look at the Ultrasound of the artery in my neck.  "Smart Phone Physical" is a great advance for doctors and medicine.  They also had a blood pressure cuff that attached to an iPhone.

After TEDMED in Washington, DC... I got back to attacking the Great Challenge of "Working Out with @TheWeightSaint" Richard Simmons' Twitter handle.

Then it was time to "Put my L Up!"

The #LHandSign Lupus Awareness Flash Mob Freeze in Hollywood!

Having fun w/ Mat Simpkins @RunningforLupus flashing the #LHandSign!

Funny pics and great idea to make such helpful health challenge.

Good for you, LA Lupus Lady. I had a roommate in college that was diagnoses with lupus, and it just wiped her out physically. I believe a lot less was known back in the late 70's and early 80s when I was in contact with her.
