ATLANTA – TedMed is an annual three-day event focused on health and medicine and is known for its provocative programing, including inspirational and innovative short talks and impressive artistic performances.

Simulcasting is offered to nonprofits, government agencies, and academic institutions free of charge through support from partner organizations. This year, the Center for Law, Health
& Society hosted a campus simulcast of TedMed Live 2013, courtesy of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). The center is an RWJF grantee.

Faculty and students from across campus gathered to view portions of the TedMed event over lunch and snacks on topics ranging from big data to community health promotion to the future of health care to technology. One engaging session included then United States Surgeon General Regina Benjamin exercising with fitness personality Richard Simmons.
