  TEDMED Live: Thinking Outside the (Check) Box  
(VTC)

TEDMED is a multidisciplinary community of innovators and leaders who share a common determination to create a better future in health and medicine. This program features brilliant short talks and stunning artistic performances that celebrate the power of unexpected connections to create important new possibilities. Join the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute on April 16-19 as we live broadcast this year's TEDMED program in our third-floor conference center.

Speakers for this session include:

Ryan Panchadsaram
White House senior advisor, Presidential Innovation Fellow, and former Microsoft designer Ryan Panchadsaram combines his diverse background to address health literacy and doctor-patient collaboration.

Salvatore Iaconesi
Artist, open-source engineer, and TED fellow and 2013 Eisenhower fellow Salvatore Iaconesi will share the beauty and power he discovered in collaboration.
