Can the innovator class save healthcare?
TEDMED came east this year from it's previous home in San Diego. It's unclear whether Washington was listening during the three and half-day day assembly. But National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins gave a talk. And so did Commissioner of the Food & Drug Administration Margaret Hamburg, along with a few other Washington types, even if they mostly didn't stay and mix in the usual TED fashion. The delegates voted for one of 50 "Great Challenges" facing healthcare that they believed was most worthy of attention. They were joined by thousands of non-attendees following the meeting for free on simulcasts and on the organization's website.
