TEDMED Viewing Schedule: November 19-20

Because this week’s TEDMED schedule is based on West Coast time (the conference is taking place in Palm Springs), the LSUHSC-NO viewings will combine live viewing and playback to maximize the number of sessions available to our community. Below are the times at which the various sessions will be shown, at both the Isché Library (Library Conference Room) and the Dental Campus (Wirth Room). For information about the sessions and the speakers, check out the stage program.

Hope to see you tomorrow!

On November 19 and 20, the LSUHSC-New Orleans Libraries will again be hosting the TEDMED Live conference’s streaming lecture series.

Those at the Dental Campus will be able to watch both days in the Wirth Room.

TEDMED is the independently owned and operated health and medicine edition of the world-famous TED conference, dedicated to “ideas worth spreading,” and brings together people and ideas from disciplines inside and outside medicine. The 2015 Stage Program will include the following sessions, with approximately 5 speakers in each session: Human Explorations, Mind Matters, Catalyzing Great Science, Back to Basics, Food Fix, Techno-Utopia, Who Cares for Health Care?, and Out There.
