Recently, Richard Afable, MD, MPH, President and Chief Executive Officer
of Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian spoke at the 2012 TEDxOrangeCoast
event in Orange County. Dr. Afable shares about how past experiences have
led him to become acutely aware of the importance of alignment. He uses
Hoag Orthopedic Institute as an example of alignment at work.
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth
spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations
and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like
experiences at the local level.
At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos — or a combination
of live presenters and TEDTalks videos — sparks deep conversation
and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently,
on a community-by-community basis.
