#Boston medical and health events: #Gun violence, #neuroscience and the #quantified self

The neuroscience events are technical, but the event on gun violence is rooted in the real world and available via a live stream. Also take note of a meet-up of the quantified self  crowd

Come early, connect with others and share your interest in QS. We’ll have healthy refreshments to get us started.

7:00 – 8:00 pm QS SHOW & TELL TALKSIf you’d like to talk about your personal self-tracking story, please let us know in your RSVP or write Joshua at [masked]. In your talk, you should answer the three prime questions: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?If you’ve never been to a meetup before, you can get a sense of what the talks are like from watching videos of previous QS talks. Talk to the speakers, chat with new and old friends, ask other people what they’re tracking, and generally hang out and have a great time.
