TED conferences are held annually in locations all across the globe, bringing together some of the world’s most innovative thinkers. Their collective mission is to disseminate “ideas worth spreading.” Suffice to say, the conferences are a pretty big deal. (See previous posts for more info, here and here.)
I apologize for the late notice, but I have some exciting news to share. With the help of UCSF’s Global Health Sciences division, TEDx is coming to UCSF’s Mission Bay campus this Saturday, November 10th!
This event’s title is “7 Billion Well: Re-imagining Global Health,” and its focus is on the most pressing health issues in the world today.
TEDx events are smaller, regionally-accessible and independently organized off-shoots of the big conference. But don’t be fooled, the speakers are no less inspiring. TEDx San Francisco was the first of its kind, and is rolling along with over 4,000 members and 60 volunteers. And the best part about TEDx, is that normal people can actually afford tickets!

If you want to meet innovative people with great ideas who want to make a difference, Mission Bay is the place to be on Saturday. We hope to see you there!
