Announcing TEDMED 2012 Speakers!

With the release of the first names of those who will take the Opera Stage at the Kennedy Center this April, we declare the season of the TEDMED 2012 gathering open.

This first crop is particularly notable for the immensity of the tasks they have undertaken and the millions of lives they will influence, from responding to human tragedy on a massive scale to leading the charge against cancer and disease.

We’ll be announcing new speakers periodically, so stay tuned.  We’ll also release more speaker videos from our 2011 conference here as well.
