SVHC goes to TEDActive

March 16, 2015



Greetings from Whistler, British Colombia! 


I'm (Emma) representing SVHC and TEDxCortland all the way over in Whistler, Canada, this week. TEDActive is a TED conference aimed at TEDx organizers, with a simulcast version of the main TED happening this week in Vancouver. The theme this year is Truth and Dare. 


Yesterday I got a behind-the-scenes look at the main stage at TED, and watched Alan Eustace's rehearsal for his talk on stratospheric exploration and making the impossible happen. And just outside the theatre the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation was building an incredible installation of life-size building blocks focused on the theme of health equity. 


You may know the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation from their County Health Rankings and innovative grant making. I know this focus on equity is an important one - check out what they're up to this week to close the equity gap in health.


I'll be keeping you updated on all things TED as the week goes on - make sure you like us on facebook for the latest happenings.
