Event Details

TEDMED is the independently owned and operated health and medicine edition of the world-famous TED conference, dedicated to “ideas worth spreading.” TED Talks have been viewed online over two billion times around the world.

TEDMED bridges the gap between science and the public by finding and sharing stories that inform, inspire, engage and provoke action across a broad, passionate community both inside and outside of health and medicine. TEDMED values inclusiveness, multi-disciplinary collaboration and diversity in its mission to catalyze a healthier world.

Our annual event brings the world together to focus on what’s new and important in health and medicine. We forge partnerships with industry leaders, medical research institutions, think tanks, government agencies and foundations, to ensure that cutting-edge biomedical thinking is shared across disciplines and made accessible to the public at large.

Year-round, TEDMED engages a community of dedicated change-makers in dynamic conversations through social media, TEDMED Talks and a variety of programmatic efforts involving speakers, start-ups and everyday breakthroughs

Connecting Remote Participants Around the World: Our partners enable TEDMED to stream the entire stage program from our annual event at no cost to teaching hospitals, academic institutions, government organizations, research centers and select non-profits in 140+ countries around the world.

Our hope is that by sharing this content, TEDMED is able to spark discussions about the future of health and medicine throughout the world. Learn more about TEDMED Live.

Game-Changing Entrepreneurs: Each year, “The Hive” program provides an immersive experience connecting our attendees (“Delegates”), partners, media and speakers with innovators and entrepreneurs representing scalable ideas and technologies that have the potential of transforming humanity’s health in fields ranging from biotechnology to healthcare delivery to new models of research.

Tackling Great Challenges: Year-round, TEDMED facilitates important conversations about some of the most complex public health challenges we face today, helping to create a better understanding of these challenges from a truly multi-disciplinary perspective.
