Tomorrow, more than a thousand “thinkers and doers” will gather in Washington, D.C., for TEDMED, a forum designed to help fuel passion, spark creativity and generate ideas that will define the future of health and medicine. TED – which stands for technology, entertainment, design – is known for being a catalyst for innovation and a place where diverse thoughts and unique thinkers can come together to make true breakthroughs. For three days, April 10-13, 2012, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will be filled with a host of luminaries and big thinkers from a variety of disciplines. You can read more about presenters, attendees and program highlights at the conference website.
