Meet the Great Challenge Advocates

Presenting our 50 Challenge Advocates, each an expert with a unique point of view on the issues behind a Great Challenge: A complex, persistent problem that affects the well-being of all of America.

At TEDMED 2012, Advocates will engage Delegates in informal conversation about their specific Challenge and will explain why it is critical and deserves immediate attention from the TEDMED community and the nation.

Sekou Andrews and Steve Connell told the TEDMED 2011 audience it was time for a "healthcare revolution."

At TEDMED 2012, Advocates will engage the TEDMED 2012 Delegates in informal conversation about their specific Challenge and will explain why it is critical and deserves immediate attention from the community. TEDMED Delegates will vote during the conference on the 20 most critical Challenges, which we’ll address in a series of online roundtable discussions.
