Dr. Michael Fratkin is a Palliative Medicine physician who works to understand what's needed and then to articulate what's revealed while serving human beings facing death. As a clinician, an educator, and a journalistic poet, Dr. Fratkin returns from the bedsides of people facing the single greatest challenge in life with practical, provocative, and profound insights. 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)
