TEDMED comes to London… kind of

So you’ve heard of TEDTalks, but have you heard of TEDMED? Seeing as it’s held in Washington D.C. and has never been streamed anywhere else in the world, probably not. So what is it? Basically it’s an annual event where world leaders in health and medicine come together to discuss the scientific, social and commercial challenges to global health and well-being in the hopes to create a better future. Don’t go booking flights to D.C. though, because, for the first time ever, TEDMED will be available outside of the United States on April 21. Following last year’s successful TEDxImperial crossover, Imperial College will be hosting a day of live talks and workshops peppered with the very best talks given at this year’s TEDMED 2013. Covering a range of topics from the impact music has on the brain to cyborg technology, there’ll be plenty for science boffins and the sci-curious alike. Additional tickets to this previously sold out event have just been released and will set you back £40 a pop. Quite a reasonable price to pay to get a glimpse into the future of medicine that doesn’t involve ingesting a lot of marshmallows and make-believe (though probably a little less tasty), don’t you think? Carly-Ann Clements
