Drew Ramsey, who says, "Food is medicine," is one of psychiatry's leading proponents of dietary change to balance mood, sharpen brain function and improve mental health. An assistant clinical professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University in New York, his clinical work focuses on the treatment of depression and anxiety with a combination of psychotherapy, diet and lifestyle modification and psychopharmacology. His books "The Happiness Diet" (Rodale 2011) and "50 Shades of Kale" (Harper/Wave 2013) and blogs The Farmacy and Recipe for Happiness aim to help people eat to for better brain health.

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)
