TEDMED is an annual event that brings together inspiring speakers and a passionate global audience. This year's theme is "What If?"
In this session,Social + Science speakers will explore the question, "What if we could create a stronger culture of health by addressing its social and environmental factors?"
Following the live-streamed event we will have a local panel discussion with speakers from the University of Alberta and from the community. We invite you to join us as we explore questions that can reshape the way we think about health and wellness.
