TEDMED IS COMING TO YOUR UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA.
FREE. LIVE. April 16-19, 2013
Streamed from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, DC
TEDMED 2012 was a great success, and we were able to experience it LIVE at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Now we are looking forward to next year’s event.
Through the generosity of the Association of American Medical Colleges, Siemens and the California Endowment, the University of Arizona is one of over 1,800 locations who receive a live stream of this unique, inspiring event.
Once a year, TEDMED holds a "grand gathering" where leaders from all sectors of society come together for three and a half days. They explore the promise of technology and the potential of human achievement. This unique event combines dazzling celebration, high-powered learning and unforgettable theater.
TEDMED is the only place where a Nobel Prize winning neurobiologist has a conversation with a four-star general… where an opera singer (with a double lung transplant) chats with a NASA space physician… and where a ballet dancer talks to an exoskeleton designer.
Together, they weave a tapestry that combines the best thinking from every field and creates infinite new possibilities.
In 2012, we heard talks from E.O. Wilson, Katie Couric, Billie Jean King, Francis Collins, Cookie Monster and many others.
Who will speak in 2013? Stay tuned.
