(From the February 2016 issue of Research Now)
DISCOVERYx 2016 is a TEDx-inspired event that will showcase ten presenters sharing “their story behind discovery” here at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH). Through communication, we will share thought-provoking ideas to spark conversation, make connections and inspire others.
Enthusiasts from all disciplines at NCH are welcome to apply using the link below and selected presenters will experience professional coaching in preparation of a live TEDx-like event. An oversight committee will select speakers based on their passion and potential to deliver innovative ideas to the community.
*Please note that you will need to create an account to apply, and for any individual who also registered for the Annual Research Retreat in 2015, the username and password will be the same as that prior account. Additionally, as part of the application process, a 100-word description of your idea and a short video of 2 minutes or less are required for submission.
We hope all of you will join us for this inaugural event at Nationwide Children's, as we explore and celebrate the story behind discoveries that make a difference to improve pediatric health.
