Upcoming Event: TEDxSF: 7 Billion Well
Our 3 session themes
- Reframing global health
Now more than ever, innovation in global health is a strategic imperative that can solve the world’s most pressing health crises. What innovations are working and which aren’t in the medical sciences and beyond? What new framework can best serve the health of 7 billion lives?
- Going beyond medicine
Taking revolutionary ideas and solutions from Silicon Valley’s latest technology to the best practices of the business world to formulate strategic actionable implementation for the health of all. Taking thoughts beyond the traditional framework of Western medicine to incorporate an accessible, cutting-edge, and multidisciplinary approach to ensure we can envision a world of 7 billion well.
- Simple solutions with big impact
The notion of the magic bullet–does it truly exist? Where can we find these hidden simple solutions with big impact? Let’s shift the current paradigm to a “conviction of can-do”–that the impossible is INDEED possible! From an individual to a societal level, what actions can one person take to empower themselves and others to create real change in the world? How have others created big impact from simple changes in lifestyle, science, and technology?
Why global health and why is it important now?
Global health does not only encompass the maternal deaths in Zambia or underweight infants in Guatemala, it’s about you and me–it’s about every single human being on the planet. It’s about us being able to envision 7 Billion Well. From the bottom to the top, we can make a difference in the lives of every person. We often hear about global health as a distant topic, but nothing can be further from the truth. This is because WE can make a real impact in each others’ lives regardless of distance now more than ever before in our history. Imagine a world in which each human being not only saw health as their responsibility but had rightful access to better sanitation and water, adequate nutrition, and healthcare. What if you knew you could help make this happen?
