Medical students at WSU Boonshoft School of Medicine will host a TEDMED Live! event in 101 White Hall (Gandhi Auditorium) on Wednesday, April 17, beginning at 6:30 p.m. If you’ve never heard of TED Conferences, they are put together to showcase great ideas and inspiring people, with the tagline “Ideas worth spreading.”
TEDMED occurs once yearly and brings together innovators, leaders, thinkers, and doers from all areas within health and medicine, and this year the conference is being held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Fortunately for everyone in the Boonshoft community, we will have a simulcast event so you don’t have to shell out $4,950 for a ticket to the conference!
The BSOM event will start with about one hour of various 10- to 20-minute videos from the conference, covering medicine, health, healthcare, and policy. Following the videos, there will be an open discussion forum moderated by local health professionals where participants can discuss ideas in the videos and related topics.
TEDMED Live! at Boonshoft School of Medicine is free and open to anyone who would like to attend. Food will also be provided. Please RSVP at http://med.wright.edu/pldp/tedmed/rsvp.
