Event Details

TEDxSanFrancisco, with the support of UCSF and Singularity University, presents:

7 Billion Well:  November 10th, 2012


We are pleased to announce our 9th gathering7 Billion Well, at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus, Saturday, November 10th, 2012. Pre-conference experiences begin at 9:00, conference begins at 11, followed by dinner and celebration from 6 to 10 pm (dinner ticket sold as add-on to main ticket).

This is a multidisciplinary program sharing ideas regarding wellness and optimization for everyone- with an emphasis on global health.   Imagine the global population not just disease-free, but the people of the planet optimized. Healthy in mind, body, and spirit, and co-creating a future.

What are the top 10 actions we can take for a healthy, whole human population? Is massive bandwidth the biggest global heath tool? How will mobile information access change global health? How will big data and genomics change the economics of pharma, and medicine and drug delivery, at the edges? Implementation science: How do creative systems-thinkers ingeniously solve global heatlh challenges? If we know how to help ourselves, why don't we modify our behaviors or comply as patients? Why does aid fail and what can we do about it?  Mental health is global health: Violence as a mental illness. Food systems for future health. Simple solutions for big impact. . .  and art, music, comedy, surprise.
Join your TEDxSF colleagues. Meet the renowned researchers, inventors, authors, and performers who will speak, and hear new concepts and emerging thinkers. USCF research teams will showcase the coolest stuff happening in our fabulous local innovation ecosystem. Get turned-on TED-style, and leave with new energy, knowledge, and insight. Our new event format leaves more time for networking and connecting.
