Posts Tagged ‘NYT Schools for Tomorrow Conference’

I’m still here.

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

My peeps!

Have no fear. I’m still here!

Although, last week I think was one of the most fun of my entire life.

I started off the week in NYC, and had dinner with one of my mentors.  A philosophy major, he challenged me to think about deep stuff like “legacy,” to which I’ve been thinking more about lately.  That is, what do you want to leave behind?

Second, on Tuesday I attended the NYT Schools for Tomorrow conference, which was equally thought provoking.  Guess what? YOU can attend too – virtually! Just click on the link and watch the programs.  Caution: the face of higher ed is CHANGING. RADICALLY.

On Friday, I gave a pharmacy law talk.  I had 30 minutes to focus on 3 cases.  I chose HIPAA, Social Media/Spoliation, and the Learned Intermediary Doctrine cases, and had a good chat with several pharmacy leaders not only about the cases, but more important, how to PREVENT the cases from happening in the first place.

Then, I went to Philly to visit an old friend.  We had a great time.  And although it has been 15 years since I lived in the city of brotherly love, I developed a new crush on it – you can read about my visit (and my love of their art initiatives) over at the other blog.

For the past 2 days, I’ve been feverishly working on a new project/campaign, which I will roll out to YOU first, my fab 13, because you’re that awesome…but it will occupy the blog here for the entire month of October.  It’s a pretty cool project.  In fact, it’s so cool, let’s call it “Project ROCKtober”!  Needless to say, when a girl is trying something new for the first time, inevitably, technical difficulties ensue.  But I’m super sleuthing my way through them, and I hope to get no one other that y-o-u involved in my project during the coming month.

Last, I decided to really get out of my comfort zone (because that’s what you’re supposed to do on a sabbatical) and I’m attending an app/gaming conference coming up this fall.  Why? Well, a myriad of reasons.  Education is headed toward gaming.  We all use apps – including in healthcare (btw – the app guidelines FINALLY came out from FDA Monday – better later than never!)  Frankly, I need to know more people in the app and gaming business anyway – so I’ve decided to get my geek on and nerd my way to and from their world this fall. Yay!

So…although I’ve been quiet, the majority of my activity is under water right now.  You can’t see it, but it is still happening, friends.  Soon enough – you’re going to be part of it – and I. Can’t. WAIT!!!!
