A hug can heal a broken heart. A mere glance can speak volumes. Health journalist Jenifer Joy Madden shares the secret to how we humans — young and old — can stay durable and effective into the future by nurturing our animal instincts and doing what our smartphones can't. Jenifer Joy Madden is an independent health journalist, award-winning community advocate, and founder of DurableHuman.com. Blending her science knowledge and way with words, she has contributed to ABC News, The Washington Post, the “Today” Show Parenting Team, and scores of other news and information outlets. Madden is also an adjunct professor of broadcast and digital journalism at the highly acclaimed Newhouse School of Public Communications of Syracuse University, as part of its Washington, D.C.-based graduate-level Capstone program.
In 2009, Jenifer created DurableHuman.com after being captivated by the tremendous digital transformation that occurred in the short time between the births of the oldest and youngest of her three children. She’s now considered a “tech hygienist” for the effective, practical strategies she offers for living in harmony with technology.
Offline, Madden builds literal bridges to greater well-being. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
