TEDMED, the global community of leading doers and thinkers from every walk of life, hosts its annual three-day gathering next month on September 10-12. The unique and provocative program brings together inspiring speakers, influential delegates and innovative start-ups, with the goal to seed the innovations in health and medicine of today, making possible the breakthroughs of tomorrow.
TEDMED is being hosted this year at two locations: the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., and the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, California. Delegates in both cities will participate in a simultaneous, unified, digitally linked program with equal numbers of live speakers, delegates, and innovative Hive
startups. The full stage program from both cities will be simulcast via TEDMEDLive, and will stream to over 100 countries.
Steelcase Health is again a contributing sponsor of TEDMED, and we will be covering this year’s conference like we have in years past. Be sure to tune in!
Host a Simulcast!
As a contributing sponsor of TEDMED, Steelcase Health is able to offer access to the TEDMED stage presentations via simulcast. All Steelcase employees and dealers may experience TEDMEDLive simulcasts, in group gatherings or individually via personal devices, at no cost.
Gathering with a small group of colleagues and friends to watch the TEDMED simulcast is a great way to hear amazing speakers, get inspired and share ideas. We hope through these simulcast gatherings that attendees would receive inspiration from both the presentations and the on-site discussions, process through the simulcast content and express reactions along with peers, and make connections they otherwise might not have. Let us know if you’d like to attend a simulcast, and we can inform you of the nearest location!
Check out the TEDMED website for information about TEDMEDLive Streaming and to view the list of speakers for each session. (Please remember that all presentations from the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. will occur on Eastern time and presentations from the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco will occur on Pacific time.) Each of the 9 TEDMED sessions lasts approximately 90 minutes and comprises 5-7 carefully curated talks on an important and/or provocative theme of health and medicine.
