From April 16-19, 2013 thought leaders from all sectors of society came together to celebrate innovation, imagination, and inspiration and their passion for a better future in health and medicine at TEDMED Live. While the event takes place at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the live stream is simulcasted around the globe at a select group of corporations and academic institutions. Cedar Crest College has been chosen as one of those partner sites.

Amy Edgar, Assistant Professor of Nursing was been chosen to attend this prestigious event at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. On Friday April 19, and take part in the Great Challenges Day discussions as part of the "Faster Adoption of Best Practices" team.

Professor Edgar tweeted from the event at #ccctedmed.

Live Event

On Friday, April 19th from 1:30 p.m. - 4 p.m. the "Faster Adoption of Best Practices" discussion was streamed live in HBB 9. Students, faculty and staff attended and participated in the event.

The campus and Lehigh Valley community can support Professor Edgar and take part through twitter or on the TEDMED website.

From the TEDMED website:

TEDMED is a multi-disciplinary community of innovators and leaders who share a common determination to create a better future in health and medicine. So many of our great challenges in health and medicine are rooted in social and commercial causes as much as medical. We need everybody at the table for an inclusive conversation about how to get the future in health and medicine we all want.
