The Happy Aftermath of a TEDMED Victory
Last week was a frenzy! The ShapeUp team travelled to TEDMED to participate in the conference’s 50 Great Challenges initiative, meant to identify the most pressing health issues of the year. We advocated for Challenge #22: Inventing Wellness Programs That Work. And guess what! After a public vote on which challenges were highest priority, ShapeUp’s Challenge #22 snagged the #1 spot, amassing 10% of the votes.
This is a big deal! When I found out, I was so excited I did a little dance in my chair! And I wasn’t just happy for my company. The TEDMED recognition means that we all, collectively, can focus on creating healthy workplaces committed to wellness and prevention. And in that scenario, everyone wins.
The good news got some coverage in the media, so read on to see what others think of our victory!
Thanks so much to everyone who supported us at TEDMED and voted! We can’t wait to continue this conversation with you.
