SWHR Presents "Science of Sex" at TedX Conference

TedX 2010Washington, DC (November 9, 2010) - The highly anticipated TEDxNASA 2010 event at Christopher Newport University featured an intriguing presentation by Society for Women’s Health Research President and CEO Phyllis Greenberger. The well-received presentation, The Science of Sex, illustrates where sex-based biological research is currently and how it will significantly impact health outcomes for both women and men in the future.

Phyllis Greenberger Speaking at TedX 2010In front of 1650 people at the Ferguson Center for the Arts, Greenberger shared SWHR’s mission and strategic goals with a new audience of policymakers, federal agency employees, and the general public, many of whom had never heard of sex-based biology.

“The opportunity to present to such a new and diverse group is crucial to expanding sex differences awareness to the general populous,” said Greenberger. “I appreciate the energy and feedback the audience provided me during the presentation and hope I inspired some new debate on sex differences research.”

Full Audience TedX 2010Other notable speakers at the jam-packed event were Dr. Bobby Braun, NASA Chief Technologist, who spoke on future space missions and technologies; Dr. Jim Green, Director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA; and Lesa Roe, Director of NASA’s Langley Research Center.

The TED talks have been viewed online more than 100 million times worldwide and an even larger audience is expected this year with the expansion of the talks through NASA’s highly regarded website. Click here to watch her presentation on YouTube.
