Conference explores future of medicine, health

By Staff


The future of health and medicine will be explored in the TedMed 2012 conference, which will be simulcast at the Anschutz Medical Campus Tuesday through April 13.

TedMed -- standing for Technology, Entertainment and Design, in the context of medicine and health care -- brings together thought leaders to present their most compelling ideas in several sessions over four days. The presentations originate at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and are being presented via simulcast at medical schools around the country through a sponsorship by the Association of American Medical Colleges.

The sessions can be viewed for free in the Education Building 1, Room 1500, beginning April 10.

Presentations include "War On Cancer, Year 40: Who's Winning?," "Can the Power of Poetry Save your Soul ... And Your Cells?," "Why is My Joystick Smarter Than Your Stethoscope?" and "Can Medical School be a 'Fantastic Voyage’?"

Each presentation lasts 10 to 15 minutes and each 90-minute session consists of four to six presentations. Viewers at Anschutz Medical Campus will be able to submit questions for discussion.

More schedule details are listed here.

Please submit an RSVP to help the organizers track attendance and notify you about future TedMed events on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
