I’m truly honored to be invited to attend and participate in TEDMED 2013 at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, April 16-19, 2013. TEDMED, a multi-disciplinary community of innovators and thought leaders will gather together to share ideas about the future in health and medicine.
I will be participating in a special event, the Great Challenges Day, which rounds off TEDMED 2013. Great Challenges Day is dedicated to the 20 Great Challenges of Health and Medicine and takes place on Friday, April 19th at the Marvin Center, on the George Washington University Campus.
Recently, I participated in The TEDMED Great Challenges and I was part of the Medical Communication team. We gathered together on Google Plus Live Hangout to talk about how to improve medical communication in the health care today.
(Medical Communication team members include, Joseph Kvedar, MD, Robert Arnold, MD, Selma, Caal, MD, John Cox and Barbara Ficarra, RN, BSN, MPA.)
