Gearing up in the fight against cancer: Cary Adams at TEDxLausanne

http://www.tedxlausanne.org - Cary Adams, a former COO of Lloyds TSB International, switched careers in 2009 to become CEO of the Union for International Cancer Control http://uicc.org (UICC; formerly International Union Against Cancer). The UICC is the largest cancer-fighting organisation of its kind, aiming to eliminate cancer as a life-threatening disease for future generations. In his talk, Cary argues for the need for major actors to invest more in the fight against this persistent threat to people's well-being. 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).
