About this event

TEDxDuke 2014: Challenge Accepted will present 12 pretty commonplace speakers from all walks of life who will challenge the way you look at the world. For the fourth annual TEDx event at Duke University, prepare to not only learn, but engage with the speakers and hundreds of other attendees and come ready to share challenges you have accepted.

Confirmed Speakers

  • P. Murali Doraiswamy
    Professor of Psychiatry and Member, Duke Institute for Brain Sciences
  • Aaron Chatterji
    As an business school professor and former White House economist, Aaron will explore how the U.S. can use technology to address its most significant challenge: lowering costs in our health care and education systems, while delivering greater value to patients and students. However, technology alone will NOT get it done. We need a new approach to understanding how humans and technology interact in our health care and education systems to guide smart technology adoption and implementation.
  • Kari Barclay
    Kari is a theater director from Bethesda, MD who blends the arts and social change. He will speak about directing plays with Latin American immigrants, Duke students, and refugees and how this work has changed his view of theatre's role in society. He will challenge artists and other changemakers to recognize that all people have untold narratives and that telling these narratives can foster a more inclusive and understanding society.
