Other than featuring stories from our students, faculty members and blog authors, we at upbeat also want to share interesting videos/talks with our readers. These videos and talks will of course, be medically related and are aimed at providing our readers with some "food for thought".

Today, we would like to share with you a talk from TED.com:
