TEDMEDLive Bristol

Bristol Health Partners is hosting a TEDMEDLive Bristol day event on 18 April at the MShed in Bristol. This will be the official launch of Bristol Health Partners and will bring together some of Bristol's leading thinkers, researchers and innovators to share ideas and find ways to transform the understanding of, and approach to, key health problems in the city and beyond.

Bristol Health Partnership, which includes AWP, Bristol NHS trusts, the local authority and the city's two universities, aims to build communities of collaborators to share ideas and set the conditions for real action and change.

Organisers have been canvassing our health community to help design the programme and more than 700 people responded to a poll. As a result the programme will include themed talks and discussions on the role of the patient, dementia and prevention as well as an inspiring mix of talks on a wide range of topics from  'Delivering better birthdays' to 'The Quantum Pharmacy'. Speakers include Edward Miller, the former Dean of Johns Hopkins in Baltimore.

TEDMEDLive Bristol is being developed in partnership with TEDMED 2013, the prestigious annual conference is being held in Washington DC, complementing the Bristol based speaker programme with a selection of talks from the US event. This partnership is a first for the UK - it is the first time a TEDMEDLive event has been run in this country.

The aim is to attract as diverse a range of delegates as possible to contribute to TEDMEDLive Bristol. This includes delegates from across health, research, education, and local government communities. Patients and carers, funders, charities, industry and business, finance, the creative arts and other sectors are also encouraged to come along.

Registration for the day event has now closed however there will be a public TEDMEDLive Bristol 'People's Choice' event at the MShed on the evening of the 18 April (18.15 - 19.45) run in association with the Festival of Ideas. Closed
