Oct 30, 2009, 9:25 AM, Posted by RWJF Blog Team

This year’s TEDMED conference was packed with engaging speakers, exciting presentations, and promising innovations.  If you weren’t able to attend or you just want to see what other attendees had to say then we have some links for you.

Want a comprehensive day by day rundown of TEDMED 2009? Medgadget has just what you are looking for.  Check out their recaps of Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

Looking for more detail on a specific speaker or innovation? Chances are that mobihealthnews has a recap for you. The future of wireless stethoscopes; the state of 23andME’s genome database; the findings from Penn Schoen Berland National Healthcare Survey for TEDMED; and  how iMeds will be bigger than iTunes.

Finally, make sure to check out twitter and YouTube to see what big ideas TEDMED participants had when asked,  “If someone handing you a blank check — what would you do to transform the future of health and health care?”  

As we mentioned last week, we don’t want to limit the conversation to the group at TEDMED – let us know how you would transform the future of health and health care via twitter -- make sure to tag your "tweets" with the #blankcheck hashtag.
