TEDxDirigo - Elizabeth McLellan - Passion for Living and Compassion for Life

Elizabeth McLellan is president and founder of Partners for World Health, which collaborates with hospitals and other health care facilities to collect and distribute discarded medical supplies. As a health care administrator in the early 1990s, McLellan traveled extensively to hospitals in developing countries, bringing along unused medical supplies to donate. After returning to Maine, she rallied supporters to participate in what would become Partners for World Health. She is dedicated to improving health care by strengthening the medical supply chain. 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)
