TEDMED talks are coming to the Health Sciences Learning Center (HSLC). Mark your calendars for a three day series of provocative, thoughtful, illuminating, creative, challenging live streamed presentations being delivered from Palm Springs, California. Starting Wednesday, November 18th through Friday, November 20th in Rooms 1220 and 1222, just off the Atrium, creative thinkers in the health sciences will share their innovative ideas on patient care, genomics, dementia, drug development, global health…the list is dense with fascinating topics. Whether you are a student, postdoc, faculty, staff, clinician or practitioner, there will be something of interest.
So you can plan your attendance, the 3 day program, times of the individual presentations, and short biographies of the presenters is available here. Click on the Speakers tab on the tool bar to connect. The schedule is also here. Please keep in mind that the times listed online are PACIFIC time- two hours behind us. So, for example on Friday, November 20th, Session 7 starts here at 1:00.
On Thursday the 19th and Friday, the 20th we will be repeating some of the premier talks from 2014, in 15 minute increments, during the “Networking, Speaker & Hive Meetup” breaks between live streamed Sessions.
On Friday, the 20th, there will be pizza for attendees, delivered around 12:00, just in time for some archived sessions and just before Session 7 starts at 1:00.
Be sure to check signs outside 1220 and 1222 for the most current schedule of the day.
Organizers are hoping to recruit volunteers to sit in various sessions and serve as casual moderators. One of the credos of TED is to get people talking- so hopefully those who attend can discuss the topics following the presentation or at a future date.
Thanks to Julie Schneider, Director of Ebling Library, Melissa Stiles, M.D., Department of Family Medicine, Justin Endo, M.D., Department of Dermatology, and Micaela Sullivan-Fowler, Ebling Marketing, for their interest in having the TEDMED talks at UW-Madison. This is going to be great.
