TEDMED event encourages innovation, idea sharing in medicine

Fourth-year medical student Julie Barrett

How much can be said about the state of health care in 18 minutes or less? You might be surprised. The nonprofit TED organization has devoted itself to spreading ideas in the form of short, powerful talks since the mid-1980s. TEDMED applies that concept to health care and medicine.

But more important than the talks are the discussions those brief presentations prompt between others, according to a group of students and faculty who replicated the TEDMED environment at East Carolina University for the first time Sept. 13.

Dylan Suttle, a fourth-year medical student and president of the 2015 Brody School of Medicine class, first proposed the idea for TEDMEDLive at ECU.
