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...

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!"
