TEDxTraverseCity goes virtual! Because of these unprecedented times, TEDxTraverseCity will be offered in an online platform this year. A livestream event will ensure our community stays safe while we celebrate ten years of bringing ideas worth spreading to Traverse City. Our tenth TEDxTraverseCity will provide another excellent opportunity for our community to be inspired and challenged. TEDxTraverseCity’s 2020 event will examine the timely concept of RETHINKING OUR HEALTH.
The health care landscape is rapidly changing as well as the impacts on our community. Cross-cutting themes of aging and well-being challenge our values and converge with economics in health discussions. As a community, we can discover transformative change and produce better health and well-being for everyone.
There are strong economic and social implications for investing in health. Well-directed health spending produces optimal health outcomes, and increases productivity and earning potential. Health and health systems contribute to well-being by protecting individuals and families from financial hardship, reducing poverty and inequity, and supporting social cohesion. We will hear insights on how health is a positive part of sustainability and community resiliency.
We can emerge from our silos, as we recognize the opportunity to broaden our knowledge. Let’s step back and take time to take a deeper look, broaden our perspective and help contribute to a better community and world.
