Folks in Seattle are more than familiar with the 12th man (or woman!): the representation of exuberance and dedication to the team and the community. In our first-ever program in Seattle, what we saw was a group of experts with this same sense of spirit and dedication — to their city, to their cause, and to their world.
Today’s program brought together entrepreneurs, civic leaders, doctors, artists and small business consultants from around the Seattle community. These brilliant minds are shaping the conversation around a wide range of topics, such as women’s reproductive health globally, national outer space security , cross communication in Israel and Palestine — and much more. We are looking forward to hearing their voices influence the public dialogue in Seattle and far beyond.
We were joined by Dr. Nassim Assefi, a global women’s health specialist, activist, novelist, and the the Director of Stage content for TEDMED. TEDMED is a year-round global community that convenes and curates extraordinary people and ideas from all disciplines both inside and outside of medicine in pursuit of unexpected connections that accelerate innovation in health and medicine. Like the OpEd Project, TEDMED is working to accelerate the best ideas.
A special thanks to our partners at The Pioneer Collective for hosting our launch in Seattle today.
