Tune-in to the TEDMED Conversation

Oct 22, 2010, 3:29 AM, Posted by RWJF Blog Team

The world’s preeminent health care innovation conference – TEDMED – begins October 26. We’re proud to help sponsor the event again this year, and we are looking forward to what promises to be a very robust discussion on accelerating change in health and health care.

Throughout the conference, we’ll be encouraging thought leaders in attendance to share their thoughts and experiences about exciting ideas and potential innovations with each other and with you. We invite you to participate in this conversation as it unfolds online. Here are a few ways you can:

Twitter: Follow the overall TEDMED conversation via #tedmed, and participate in the conversation Pioneer is facilitating via #ideapowered.

YouTube: Pioneer team members will ask attendees their thoughts on improving health care. You can watch these short video interviews at http://youtube.com/pioneerrwjf

Flickr: Share your best ideas by answering one of three questions and posting it to the Pioneer Flickr account. Just print out a downloadable word bubble, fill in your idea, take a photo of yourself holding your word bubble, and post it on Flickr to join the interactive dialogue.  

And be sure to check out Pioneering Ideas beginning next week for thoughts from our grantees and team members.
