Dr. Joy Wolfram of the Mayo Clinic became the first TEDxJacksonville speaker to have her TEDx talk promoted to TED.com.
Wolfram’s talk “How Nanoparticles Could Change the Way We Treat Cancer” went live on TED.com on Friday, October 18. Wolfram spoke at TEDxJacksonville 2018 at The Florida Theatre.
“Our audience in Jacksonville was wowed by Joy Wolfram’s talk and the implications of her work in the field of nanomedicine and the fight against cancer. The team at TED agreed — Joy’s talk is one that the whole world needs to watch,” said Sabeen Perwaiz, co-organizer and executive producer of TEDxJacksonville. “We’re incredibly proud of Joy in Jacksonville. This is the pinnacle achievement for a TEDx speaker.”

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, often in the form of short talks delivered by leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED conferences, including our annual gathering in Vancouver, as well as TEDWomen, intimate TED
Salons and thousands of independently organized TEDx events around the world. Videos of these talks are made available, free, on TED.com and other platforms. Audio versions of the talks from TED2019 will also be published to TED's podcast TED Talks Daily, available on Apple Podcasts and all other podcast platforms.
TED's open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; TEDx, which licenses thousands of individuals and groups to host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities; the Audacious Project, which surfaces and funds critical ideas that have the potential to impact millions of lives; TEDSummit, which gathers the most engaged members of the global TED community for brainstorms, discussions, performances, workshops and an eclectic program of mainstage talks; and the educational initiativeTED-Ed. TED also has a library of original podcasts, including The TED Interview with Chris Anderson, Sincerely, X, and one of Apple Podcasts’ most downloaded new shows of 2018, WorkLife with Adam Grant.
