TEDMED SESSION 8: ‘Welcoming Death Into Life’
Last week TEDMED 2013 came to an official close. At HIBC.tv we were among a deep and wide network of affiliates who were empowered to stream the event live for the benefit of the global community at large, as well as the local, regional, or national constituents we serve.
This has been another amazing TEDMED organized, hosted and curated event that leveraged the power of ideas, media and technology to ‘carry the message’ to as wide an audience as possible while subtracting any barriers to this message whether physical, financial or psychological. In our view, they succeeded and in a BIG way.
This is SESSION 8: Welcoming Death into Life. We will post each session and attempt to add some of the key ideas that resonated with the audience as reflected on twitter.
Of note is the introduction of ‘Lets Have Dinner and Talk About Health‘, described below:
How we want to die – represents the most important and costly conversation America isn’t having. We have gathered dozens of thought leaders, engineers, and designers to cast an unflinching eye at end of life – and to create an uplifting interactive adventure that transforms this seemingly difficult conversation into one of deep engagement, insight and empowerment. Welcome to the inner workings of our design effort, we invite you to expore the work we have already completed.
Please stay tuned for a launch of our full site in Summer 2013 – when you will be invited to bring the people you care about to the table.
