Experience TEDMED 2013 Free – Courtesy of TMA


The Texas Medical Association is proud to host a live simulcast, April 17, of the TEDMED lectures direct from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.

What’s TEDMED? It’s an annual meeting of the minds where multi-disciplinary innovators discuss hot topics and new developments in health and medicine. Past TEDMED speakers include Temple Grandin, President Bill Clinton, and TMA’s 2013 General Session speaker, Abraham Verghese, MD, to name a few. This year’s speaker line-up includes 50+ global leaders from medicine, science, research, technology, academia, business, government, and the arts. Don’t miss out!

Though much of the focus of the event is on stage, it is important to remember that TEDMED is a fast-paced, all-encompassing and immersive event that provides stimulation and exciting discourse from start to finish…onstage and off.

Come prepared to think; come prepared to interact -- but most of all, come prepared to have fun! You're sure to find TEDMED an unforgettable experience.
