HEALTH FORWARD IS A UNIQUE, INTERNATIONAL EVENT FOR INNOVATION, CREATIVITY AND GOOD PRACTICES IN THE HEALTH SECTOR.
In honor of the tradition of TEDMED Live Athens' subversive speeches, SciCo, in collaboration with the Onassis Foundation Fellows Association and with the help of the TEDMED Live Athens volunteer group, organized the "Health Forward" event on September 12-13, 2014 at the Cultural Center "Greek World".
The aim of the two-day event was to showcase and discuss the challenges in the Health sector and to make several Health scientists from all over Greece and abroad accessible to the general public, presenting medicine from another point of view. The event focused on explaining health issues, but also inspiring, bringing together innovators, scientists, health care providers, patients, social workers, entrepreneurs and artists.
Through 15 speeches and 12 workshops by Greek and foreign speakers, the public had the opportunity to discover aspects of Health that they did not know existed and to be inspired through creative presentations of people, whose actions bring revolution to the field of Health. During the two days, TEDMED speeches were also broadcasted.
Invited speakers of Health Forward were: Abraham Verghese, Theoklis Zaoutis, Georgios Vichas, Ran Gavrieli, Ioannis Liaros, Nikolas Papadopoulos, Nikolaos Boudouvis, Faye Christodoulou, Myrtani Pieri, Adonis Georgiadis, Georgios-Ioannis Tsianos, Fedon Kaloterakis, Eleni Kontogianni, Phumeza Tisile, Paris Kosmidis, Vaia Lampadiati, Ioannis Poulis, Eleni Kakalou, Georgios Tsagaris, Georgios Landis, Nia Panagopoulou, Mina Priona, Nikolaos Degleris, Manto Karaberi, Andreas Solias, Stefania Maroudi-Manta, Katerina Mougkou, Vasiliki Mousatou, Evaggelia Chrysikou, Pola Nomikou, Mara Darmousli and the Comic Boom team, which presented the Stand-Up Comedy show "Laughter Is Health".
