Nelson Dellis speaking at TEDxCoconutGrove at Ransom Everglades School in Miami, Florida about the notion that our memories are what make us uniquely individual--without them, we are merely empty vessels; our brain health is key to maintaining our selves and there are things we can do to improve it. Nelson climbs mountains to help raise awareness for Alzheimer's disease. He is also the 2012 & 2011 USA Memory Champion and holds multiple US memory records. He founded a charity, Climb For Memory, in early 2010.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
