Podiatric Surgeon David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) at the Univeristy of Arizona College of Medicine, was, along with Neurosurgeon Prof. Allen Hamilton and Head and Neck surgeon Prof. Alexander Chiu, moderated the Thursday TEDMED UA event simulcast to the University's Bio5 institute from the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. “This was such an inspiring day”, noted Dr. Armstrong. “To see a folk singer hobnob with a anchorwoman chatting with a professional tennis player commenting on works of an epidemiologist might not seem like someone's idea of fun, but TED has managed to create an atmosphere of innovation, inspiration and enthusiasm like no other.” Originally begun as a meeting on Technology Education and Design, TED has branched off into TEDMED and other symposia, worldwide.
