TEDMEDLive to Unlock Imagination in Austin Sept 10-12

Aug 27, 2014 

  • WHATTEDxAustin, in collaboration with the Texas Medical Association (TMA), The University of Texas at Austin (UT), Seton Healthcare Family, and the LIVESTRONG Foundation, will host TEDMEDLive2014 HD simulcasts and live panel interactions at locations throughout Austin.

    Each location will simulcast the TEDMED 2014 Unlocking Imagination in Service of Health and Medicine conference taking place in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco. In addition, simulcast hosts have assembled live panels focused on TEDMED’s stage content to spark dialogue about health and medical care in our region. Made possible through the financial support of local partners, all programs are free, and the public is invited to participate at each location.

    Best known for its annual three-day gathering, TEDMED invites the world’s most creative minds to discuss health care’s most pressing problems and innovative scientific concepts. TEDMED’s content inspires critical new possibilities for the future of health and medicine, presented in a provocative stage program of brilliant short talks and artistic performances.

    The TEDMEDLive2014 experiences in Austin include (see schedule below):


    • A discussion on risky behaviors and how Travis County compares with Texas and the nation on binge drinking, alcohol-related traffic fatalities, HIV, and sexually transmitted infection rates.
    • A look at innovations that help Austinites become and stay healthier where they live, work, and worship.
    • A deep look at “frequent flyers” — patients who return repeatedly to the emergency department — and factors driving emergency department use at one Austin hospital.
    • Insight into health care’s adoption of technology solutions from other industries to make our community better, smarter, and healthier.
    • Designing with intention to sustain a healthy community.
    • Wrangling volumes of data … and how we understand and use data safely.
