Dr. Leana Wen is a Harvard-trained emergency physician and a former Rhodes Scholar. Inspired by her mother's long battle with cancer, Dr. Wen is passionate about guiding patients to advocate for better care. She is the author of the critically-acclaimed book, When Doctors Don't Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests. A noted physician, researcher, and international speaker, Dr. Wen has been featured in TIME, Newsweek, ABC News, The New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, and the award-winning HBO documentary Reporter. She is the leader of a new, low-tech revolution to better health that calls for the return of medicine as a healing art. Dr. Wen was the opening speaker at the first ever TEDxCortland, held November 9th, 2013, at Greek Peak Mountain Resort. All TEDxCortland talks were filmed by Moving Box Studios.

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)
