The Huffington Post And TED Present A New Reason To Look Forward To Fridays With The Launch Of TED Weekends

Today's first TED Weekends idea is introduced by Dr. Brian Goldman, who suggests that talking openly about medical mistakes may be the first step toward healing a broken healthcare system. The conversation will include doctors Dean Ornish, David Katz, and Patricia Fitzgerald – and many more – as well as members of the Huffington Post community weighing in with their expertise or personal experience.

TED Weekends is  a co-production of the Huffington Post and TED, sponsored by Chevy Volt,  and can be found at  www.huffingtonpost.com/TEDWeekends.

About TEDTED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at  TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TEDConference takes place each spring in Long Beach, California, along with the TEDActive simulcast in Palm Springs; the annual TEDGlobal conference is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

TED's media initiatives include  TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide, and TEDBooks, short e-books by speakers that elaborate on a single idea originally presented on TED's stage.TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
