TEDMED 2013 has officially wrapped but the conversation and tweets (over 78k of them) continue and that’s just what the TEDMED organizers had in mind. The goal of TEDMED was not to be a conference but a community gathering where discussions and relationships blossomed. A quick look across social media tells us that goal was achieved.
A few highlights from the final hours of TEDMED 2013.
The conversation was vast and deep.

This was perhaps the coolest of them all.
Why? Because of the reach – think about it!
