Watch CLF Director’s Speech at TED Conference

CLF’s Director, Robert S. Lawrence, MD, was among the featured presenters at last month’s TEDx Manhattan Conference, “Changing the Way We Eat.” His presentation, “The Effects of a High Meat Diet on Public Health,” is now available on YouTube. The event, attended by 350 invited guests at New York’s Times Center, was also featured on a live webcast. Nearly 26,000 total streams of the webcast, comprising almost 9,000 unique web addresses tuned into the program. TEDx Manhattan is one of several self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. In addition to Dr. Lawrence, the 17 speakers throughout the day included Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food and Water Watch; Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Human Society of the United States; David Wallinga, MD, of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy; and Fred Kirschenmann, distinguished fellow at the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture and president of the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture.
