Ideas Worth Spreading.

Join other TED enthusiasts for TEDxOmahaSalon, a monthly conversation group. We watch two recorded TED Talks on a topic, then talk about the implications and opportunities.

East and West: Medicine at Odds

Come along and join us for conversation and discussion as we get together to explore the world of medicine through some different lenses. We are going to examine some of the challenges and questions that are facing practitioners and recipients of the medical system, what does health and wellbeing mean, and one of the questions we will be asking ourselves is: Are we so focused on ever-increasing specialization that we are missing the ‘whole picture’. What are the different lenses and perspectives on medicine and health, and what does the future have in store?

About TEDxOmaha
TEDxOmaha is an independently organized TEDx event. As a part of the global TED community, we connect locally to explore the ideas and situations that affect our cultures, environments, and minds. Most people are introduced to this remarkable collection of human experiences through recorded TED Talks. Through technology, we can hear stories of discovery, heartache, joy, introspection, and imagination from some of the world’s most amazing people. By creating events in Omaha, we produce an experience based on TED’s principles.

Who attends TEDxOmaha? Five hundred of our community’s most curious, forward-thinking people. Activists, artists, philanthropists, modern-day philosophers, policymakers, stay-at-home parents, and more. You, too, can gather with amazing people from our region who share their insights and accomplishments. It helps us witness what is happening – and what is possible – so we can be inspired to take bigger steps together. TEDxOmaha is held annually in October and offers monthly TEDxOmahaSalon events at The KANEKO.
