Did you miss the first TEDMED Day CUMC last semester? Now you can watch the talks of the day’s speakers on YouTube. Eight members of the CUMC community spoke during the day, with talks ranging from advances in genome screening to new insights into why children with autism struggle with language.
The day was organized by P&S students in the Innovative Medicine Interest Group. “We all love TED talks because they are inspiring and entertaining and make ideas accessible for a wide audience,” says Katie Hatch, P&S’16 and the director of TEDMED Day.

Students and faculty members from entire Columbia community attended, and spaces in Alumni Auditorium were booked days before the event.
“Our hope was to bring together individuals from across the CUMC community to be inspired by innovative thinking in healthcare,” Hatch adds. “Based on the positive response from our audience, I think it was a success.” The group is currently planning a 2014 event.
