In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxRushU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxRushU event, live speakers and TEDTalks video will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
Check-in begins at 12:30 pm and the event will start promptly at 1:00 pm. Refreshments and light snacks will be served during intermission.

In addition to our event, we wanted to share information on a donation opportunity to the Mayur Patel Fund. Donations to this endowed fund support Rush Health Systems Management student fieldwork in memory of Mayur Patel, a Rush alumnus, faculty member and friend. This is a voluntary donation and not required to attend the TEDxRushU event. Your support is appreciated. If you are interested in donating, please go here for more information: http://rush.convio.net/MayurPatel
