Carla Pugh, MD, PhD, will participate in a talk at TEDMED 2014 titled “Play Is Not a Waste of Time.” The session will take place 1:30-3:05 p.m. on Sept. 11. The talk, which includes seven speakers, will reveal the many ways imagination rewards us, specifically how health and medicine are enhanced through the power of play. Dr. Pugh will share surprising information about a kind of skill and intelligence that can now be measured and taught for the first time.
TEDMED 2014 will take place Sept 10-12 in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco — one stage, two cities. The entire TEDMED program can be viewed online via TEDMED live streaming. Access is free for academic medical centers, but registration is required.
