In its fourth year, TEDMED is an annual conference that helps us recharge our brains and get an innovative look at the possibilities for health and medicine.  The concept grew out of the famous TED conferences, nonprofit events devoted to ideas worth spreading. TED stands for technology, entertainment and design. The 3 ½-day event is simulcast around the world from Washington, D.C. and you’re welcome to attend for free!  Florida Blue will be simulcasting the conference in Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando and Pensacola on April 17-19 and in Miami on April 18.  The simulcasts are FREE and all sessions are open to the public. Deadline to sign up is Monday, April 15th, 2013. To see information about the specific locations, times and topics and to register, click on the link below: Florida Blue Live TEDMED Simulcast Some of the thought-provoking topics that will be covered during TEDMED 2013 are:

    • Are zombie doctors taking over America?
    • What's the 21st century version of prevention?
    • What happens…now that I can read your brainwaves?
