This week, 1500 thinkers and doer’s are gathering in Washington DC for the annual TEDMed conference to imagine the future of healthcare. Over 70 multi-disciplinary speakers will give short presentations discussing topics ranging from robotic doctors, community care and artificial hearts to preventative Alzheimer’s care.
The conference also sees the launch of the Great Challenges programme to gather interdisciplinary thinking on 50 persistent health and medicine topics. These include obesity, dementia, best practice and personalised medicine. TEDMed takes place at the Kennedy Centre, Washington DC until April 13.
