Since 2009, TEDMED has been the conference where the world’s most creative minds have gathered to meet healthcare’s most innovative science.  An offshoot of the renowned TED (Technology+Entertainment+Design) conferences, TEDMED is an unparalleled interdisciplinary experience, bringing together great minds from dozens of medical and non-medical fields for a new kind of intellectual cross-pollination.  The result is a unique opportunity for inspiration, innovation, and imagination — a chance to envision the future of health and healthcare in entirely new ways.  To get a sense of the experience, see http://tedmed.com/videos to view past TEDMED talks.

Normally, onsite delegates to TEDMED pay an event fee of $4,950 to attend.  This April,  TEDMED can be experienced right here at the Health Science Center at no charge.  TEDMEDLive is an interactive simulcast — sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and hosted here by the Libraries, Information Management & Services (IMS), and the Academic Center for Excellence in Teaching (ACET) — that puts you in the front row of  TEDMED 2012 right here on campus.
