Here at TEDx, we were pleased to find quite a few of our speakers among the honorees. Below, we highlight just a small sample of those speakers. Get ready for 6 talks about the power of design to create change in the world.
The next generation of global health: Barbara Bush at TEDxBrooklyn
As she finished up her college career, Barbara Bush, daughter of former president George W. Bush, saw an opportunity to make a mark in the world — by asking members of her generation to join her in changing the face of public health. At TEDxBrooklyn, she explains how she got here, and tells the stories of some of the designers and planners working for her organization, Global Health Corps.
From PID: Barbara Bush is co-founder and CEO of Global Health Corps, which places and engages fellows—like Rwandan architects Christian Benimana and Commode Dushimimana of MASS Design Group—in developing nations to work towards improving health outcomes for the poor.
