As we count down the days until TEDMED, we present a numerical look at the speakers for TEDMED 2014.
Some fun facts:
This year, we’re particularly proud that 45 of our speakers – 51 percent – are women. As we ramp up to an eventual global presence, we’ve invited speakers from 20 nations and five continents.
They also represent a wide variety of interdisciplinary brilliance: 22 MDs, 26 PhDs (10 overachieving MD/PhDs and one hyper-overachieving college dropout), lawyers, architects, economists, journalists, entrepreneurs, an extreme athlete, acrobaticalists, global musicians, comedians, actors, dancers, photographers, and a man who gets a lot of mileage out of his pink tutu.
