TED relaunched its popular TED Health podcast today with new host Dr. Shoshana Ungerleider, MD, a San-Francisco-based internist and leading voice in healthcare. The series will continue to spotlight innovative speakers on health and science, featuring TED Talks covering a range of issues from antibiotic use in animals to the neuroscience of how memories are formed.
This was a tough year, and it’s made people think about their physical and mental health more than ever. Shoshana’s curiosity, compassion, and expertise make her the ideal host to guide us through this complicated time.Michelle Quint, TED Director of Audio
Dr. Ungerleider has practiced internal medicine for eight years and is the founder of End Well, a nonprofit seeking to drive a cultural shift to improve the end of life experience. Since its inception in 2017, End Well has brought prominent voices and unsung heroes to the forefront of a movement to ensure we all live better through to the end. Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Ungerleider has been a frequent medical contributor to both broadcast and print audiences, appearing on CNN, MSNBC, and CBS, among other national news channels, with writing in TIME, Scientific American, and The San Francisco Chronicle, among other publications.
I couldn’t be more excited and honored to join TED, the undisputed authority in all things innovation, to be a part of the new TED Health podcast. We’ve got an exciting upcoming season, showcasing stories and voices from the cutting edge which TED is known for, to help our listeners lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.
Dr. Shoshana Ungerleider,
