UTMB invited to TEDMED Connect - The Online Experience


To all members of the UTMB Community,

From April 16-19, thanks to a partnership with TEDMED initiated by UTMB students and supported by Student Life, you will have personal online access to TEDMED's entire program of more than 60 remarkable speakers directly from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, at no cost.

What is TEDMED?

TEDMED is a multi-disciplinary community of innovators and leaders who share a common determination to create a better future in health and medicine. So many of our great challenges in health and medicine are rooted in social and commercial causes as much as medical. We need everybody at the table for an inclusive conversation about how to get the future in health and medicine we all want.

Once a year at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, TEDMED curates an unusual and provocative program on the Opera House stage. The 3 ½ day program features brilliant short talks and stunning artistic performances that celebrate the power of unexpected connections to create important new possibilities. To find out more, visit www.tedmed.com.

How to Access:

Desktop Computer and Laptop Access

You can watch all sessions in real time during the live schedule on April 16-19, or on-demand shortly after each session through April 21.
