The annual TEDMED (Technology/Entertainment/Design/Medicine) conference brings together a large group of diverse speakers who share a common interest in improving health and medicine.
The event takes place live from the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and costs $5,000 to attend, but organizers offer a free live simulcast to academic medical centers such as Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center.
TEDMED 2013 will be simulcast live on April 16-19 in the auditorium of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Administration Building (WHSCAB). Admission is free, and no registration is necessary. All are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions, each of which will feature 10-15 brief speakers and the opportunity to make comments and ask questions in real time through the free TEDMED Live App.
"TEDMED presents a unique opportunity to engage with some of the world's most talented and interesting people around an issue that's relevant to us all – how we improve health and medicine," says Emory Executive Vice President for Health Affairs Wright Caughman. "I'm so pleased that TEDMED offers a free, interactive simulcast to Emory. I believe our faculty, staff, students and community will benefit greatly from participating in this exciting and informative event."
TEDMED speakers include global leaders from science, research, technology, academia, business, government, and the arts. TEDMED brings together some of the world's most interesting, innovative and thought-provoking minds to explore the possibilities in health and healing.
