TEDMED 2020 Sessions Announced

Inspiring a healthier humanity requires us to push ourselves forward to drive progress while reflecting on the astonishing accomplishments we have achieved. At TEDMED 2020, we will connect with an invisible force that has been propelling humanity forward for millennia—wonder. To experience wonder is to experience the power and possibilities that lay beneath the surface waiting to be discovered.

As our 2020 Stage Program and community conversations evolved, we began to see the power of wonder at work. From the great wisdom that can be found in wonder to the duality of wonders of the human mind, wonder is abound at TEDMED 2020. As such, we are pleased to share our five 2020 Sessions with you:

Our 2020 Editorial Advisory Board and Research Scholars have been deeply involved in shaping our stage program and on-site conversations. As our community always does, they generously gave their time, expertise, and wisdom to craft this year’s experience. We hope you’ll join us March 2-4 as we make way for wonder in Boston, MA. If you’re as inspired by these Speakers and Sessions are we are there is still time to be a part of this passionate community. Be sure to register and secure your spot at TEDMED 2020!

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing more details about the event. To stay informed sign up for our newsletter and subscribe to the TEDMED blog.

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.
