TEDMED contemplates organ transplants, medical errors

The recent TEDMED conference was packed with speakers strategically chosen to educate and entertain. There were experts from across the scientific spectrum, like Carl Hart, a psychiatry and psychology professor at Columbia University, who unconventionally suggested decriminalization of all drugs in the U.S. based off of his interpretation of scientific data. Hart's talk was part of the "Don't You Dare Talk About This" series of the conference. Other speakers included a discussion on organ transplantion with lawyer and bioethicist Sigrid Fry-Revere as well as a talk surrounding medical errors and malpractice led by Army Surgeon General Patricia Horoho.
