We celebrate and promote innovation and emerging health technology at various events. Not only do we sponsor exciting health innovation offerings, we also keep a pulse on the Austin health innovation scene and try to attend as many of these events as possible.

#Seton TEDMEDLive


TEDMEDLive is a two and a half day annual event where cutting-edge biomedical thinking is shared across disciplines and made accessible to the public. This year, the entire program will be available through an online broadcast directly from the TEDMED stage in Palm Springs. Seton associates are invited to stream TEDMED talks live or view on-demand using the Seton access information. Associates who tune in and post photos or comments to social media using #SetonTEDMEDLive will be entered into a raffle for a ticket to SXSW Interactive 2016!
