TEDMED Recognizes Its Partners

We thank our Partners, who not only help us power the TEDMED event each year, but also enable us to have an impact in Health and Medicine year-round. From fueling our global event, to powering innovation in The Hive, to making the program accessible online for organizations on the front lines of health and medicine around the world via TEDMED Live – Partnerships are essential to driving TEDMED’s mission of shaping a healthier world.


In seeking clarity amidst chaos, the AMA is attacking the dysfunction in health care. We are achieving this by removing the obstacles and burdens that interfere with patient care; reimagining medical education, training and lifelong learning for the digital age to help physicians adapt and grow at every stage of their careers; and improving the health of the nation by confronting the increasing chronic disease burden.

CHAOS+CLARITY= Attacking the dysfunction in health care by removing obstacles and burdens that interfere with patient care—that’s the work of today’s American Medical Association. 

Amidst complexity and chaos, Joule and its parent company, the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), unite over 85,000 physician members to drive breakthroughs in health care delivery and system change. Joule accelerates physician-led innovation and physician adoption of health care technologies to harness clarity and a healthier future. 

Chaos+Clarity= Driving breakthroughs in health care innovation and system change.

For more than 40 years the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has invested in improving health and healthcare in the U.S. Today, we are continuing to do that by working with leaders across the nation to build a comprehensive Culture of Health, enabling everyone in America to live longer, healthier lives. 

CHAOS+CLARITY= Ensuring that all have the basics to be as healthy as possible.


A new effort by The SCAN Foundation recasts the stereotypical “me-first” image of Millennials with the truth that 10 million+ younger adults provide substantial care for older loved ones. The Do You Give A Care? campaign aims to eliminate the chaos and isolation many feel when caregiving by bringing the issue to public consciousness. It champions Millennials as visible, vocal caregivers and amplifies key skillsets—collaboration, entrepreneurship, and technological savvy—into a robust community movement.

Chaos+Clarity= Empowering Millennial caregivers across America with knowledge, resources, and supportive communities.
