September 2014

I was delighted to be invited to give a TEDMED talk this year. So, Jen and I got to go to San Francisco so I could deliver the talk. It involved a ton of preparation, but it was definitely worth it. If you haven't seen the talk, please watch and give me a thumbs-up on YouTube -- but only if indeed you think it does deserve a thumbs-up, of course! While the talk was certainly a highlight of the trip, another highlight was being able to visit bay-area family, including welcoming Declan into the world! Enjoy, and click a picture to enlarge it.

A fellow presenter made my portrait in bacteria (no, I'm not kidding ...)!

I was shocked to enter the hall and see a larger-than-life artist's rendition of myself hanging from the ceiling. Weird!

One of my favorite presenters, Zsolt Bognar, played Schubert and told of his fascinating medical history.

A wacky giant chair they had in the hotel.

San Francisco has a lot of character.

Jenny got to hold her brand-new cousin Declan Grey Stucky!

And here she is with Declan's big sister Shay.
