Where I stayed
Washington Guest Suites
I checked out of my hotel, left my bag with them and headed for the Kennedy Center. The TEDMED schedule in the morning was similar to yesterday. At lunch time instead of heading upstairs I was one of the people in the Great Challenges Day events, which were being held at George Washington University. I caught a shuttle there. The first part of the event was lunch with the students.
After lunch we went into an auditorium for a discussion about what we'd be doing. We then broke up into a number of groups of around 20 people. My group was to discuss Achieving Medical Innovation.
I headed back to my hotel to pick up my bag, walked to the Metro and caught a train to the Van Dorn Street station. I arrived just after a shuttle to Landmark Honda had left. I hung around the station and killed some time until the next shuttle.
My car was all set to go when I arrived. I paid my bill, got my car and headed home.
I've wanted to go to a TED conference for some time but I've never applied to be invited. When I got an invitation to a TEDMED conference that was near home I thought it was too good to pass up. I'm glad I went. I enjoyed the TEDMED conference. Maybe I'll finally get around to applying for a TED conference.
