03-05-2018 Igluu

Op 3 mei organiseert TEDxEindhoven het eerste event van 2018. Het overkoepelende thema is gezondheid en de titel van het event is 'Our Future Bodies'. Hieronder en op de website van TEDxEindhoven staat meer informatie over het event. Tevens kun je je daar aanmelden om erbij aanwezig te zijn.


TEDxEindhoven is organizing its first event of 2018, on the 3rd of May. We’re inviting everyone to join our event, and community, to discuss more ideas worth spreading. With TEDxEindhoven we want to bring together people, about one thing we all share. No matter where you are from, how old you are, your sexual preference. No matter your beliefs, your job, your wealth. We all share this one thing in common, which is we are human beings with human bodies. ~99.5% of our DNA is similar to everyone else’s DNA. At the same time, you can recognise the faces from your friends and family out of millions. Our bodies are beautiful, complex, broken, can feel love, can feel pain, can be destroyed but can also be treated, cured and strengthened. Within our local and international TEDxEindhoven community we come across many amazing people directly or indirectly working with new ideas on the body. We wanted to host an event specifically dedicated to these new ideas, which is why we are excited to invite you all to TEDxEindhovenSalon titled “Our Future Bodies”!

We will take the Eindhoven healthcare network to the next level and create global connections on healthcare design, technology, medicine and future thinking about living with disease and longevity. Four TEDx speakers from various fields will share their perspectives on “Our Future Bodies” in four short talks. We will end the afternoon with an inspiring discussion. A professional discussion panel will reflect on the four speakers and share their vision on oncology. Together they will answer the question what cancer care will look like in 20 years from now.
