TEDMED Speakers: Tackling the Taboo

We’re just a few weeks out from TEDMED 2014! Next up – we’re sharing details on “Don’t You Dare Talk About This,” which will be presented on Day 2 of our bi-coastal event. You can’t solve a problem if you refuse to talk about it; to accelerate progress, we need to discuss controversial issues that may make us uncomfortable.
