Abstract / Description: 

TEDMED is a global community of leading doers and thinkers from every walk of life. Our goal is to seed the innovations of today, making possible the breakthroughs of tomorrow. This year TEDMED is honored to have the support of Stanford Medicine and the University of California, San Francisco as its medical research institution partners on the West Coast.

From September 10-12, 2014, we'll bring together Delegates in Washington, DC and San Francisco, CA for this year's TEDMED gathering. Delegates in both cities will participate in a simultaneous, unified, digitally linked program with equal numbers of live Speakers, Delegates, and innovative Hive startups.

TEDMED curates an unusual and provocative program featuring brilliant short talks and stunning artistic performances that reframe our mental models and inspire important new possibilities. TEDMED also offers evening spectaculars, thought-provoking conversations with Delegates and Speakers, and a showcase of inspiring startups called "The Hive". The result is an immersive experience that allows us to recharge our brains, jumpstart new thinking, energize our work and enlarge our worldview. We come away from TEDMED better able to imagine new possibilities and solutions for the future of health and medicine.

If you are passionate about creating a healthier world, we encourage you to apply to attend TEDMED 2014. If you cannot attend in person the full stage program will be simulcast at the Stanford School of Medicine.
