Jennifer Brea's TED Talk
Wednesday 18 January 2017
From Jennifer Brea (via email):
My TED Talk on illness, gender bias, and the unknown
"Five years ago, TED Fellow Jennifer Brea became progressively ill with myalgic encephalomyelitis, commonly known as chronic fatigue syndrome, a debilitating illness that severely impairs normal activities and on bad days makes even the rustling of bed sheets unbearable. In this poignant talk, Brea describes the obstacles she's encountered in seeking treatment for her condition, whose root causes and physical effects we don't fully understand, as well as her mission to document through film the lives of patients that medicine struggles to treat."
Next stop: the Sundance Film Festival! We're so excited to be premiere Friday. Follow our journey on Facebook and Twitter.
We couldn't do this without you. UNREST has been made possible through the generous support of thousands of donors all around the world. We are currently fundraising for outreach and audience engagement. With your help, we'll build a team to ensure the film reaches the audiences and influencers best positioned to help us create change and accelerate science. Thank you for your support!
