We’ve also chosen our west coast venue: the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco joins our DC presence at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as locales in our first unified two-city event this September 10-12.

The faculty of Stanford Medicine includes eight Nobel Prize winners; Stanford Hospital and clinics is consistently ranked as one of America’s best hospitals in 13 out of 16 medical specialties; and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford is one of our nation’s most prominent children’s hospitals. TEDMED is honored to partner with one of the world’s most respected universities. Read more here.

Delegates in both cities will view our stage program live and via HD simulcasts with each city’s location featuring approximately 50 speakers and performers who explore the same basic themes.

“Delegates in both cities will enjoy a world-class stage program and gathering in these two iconic venues, and an experience that opens the mind, heart and soul to inspiration, innovation and imagination,” said Shirley Bergin, TEDMED’s COO.

We’ll be announcing our phenomenal speaker lineup soon, as well as more details about our 2014 event, just three months away.  Please watch here and @TEDMED for updates.
