It is with this notion in mind that we call on the TEDMED community of health and medicine experts and enthusiasts to dig deep for a thought experiment: Can we rebuild some of health and medicine’s most complex and critical issues – our Great Challenges – by creatively rethinking their foundations?

Some things take so long
But how do I explain
When not too many people
Can see we’re all the same
And because of all their tears
Their eyes can’t hope to see
The beauty that surrounds them
Isn’t it a pity

Nina Simone sings a song written by George Harrsion from his 1970 solo album All Things Must Pass

One of a pair, the 70 foot tall granite #nyc Egyptian obelisk has a pyramidal top and is also known as Cleopatra’s needle. In 1881 it was set @centralparknyc on elevated bedrock to protect against any “violent convulsion of nature.” Notes from my #run and #muse for #travelTuesday.  #resiliency #girltrekremix #gilrtrek #nikeplus

Did not see #mayaangelou tribute, saw a phenomenal #graffiti art collection all over the neighborhood. Noteworthy: We all need space to create, to be creative some will use the places left undone to shape the future. Creative work matters. #Queens diversity #nyc #sundaymuse #placemaking (at Vernon Blvd, Lic, Qns)
