The Highlight of my Week

…was meeting State Senator Kirk Watson. He swung by our inaugural health2.0 kickoff event last night to show his support for our idea – to build a kickass health IT community in Austin.
Senator Watson has spearheaded the health reform movement here in Austin through taking on a list of initiatives. The movement and organization is called HealthyATX, and the goals include setting up a healthcare incubator in Austin, developing more innovative ways for health care delivery, and bringing a medical school to Austin. He’s already made some progress on the last one.
If I haven’t said it yet, this city is awesome.
