|IVCi is incredibly excited to announce an amazing Telehealth event! Patient care is all about being there. Being there with critical data and information to be sure, but more than that, healthcare institutions have a responsibility to enable the best of human resources to “be there” too.
On June 7th, IVCi & Polycom will be presenting the future of health care streamed live at six telepresence locations through the country. At this event you will hear from industry experts and real healthcare professionals on how telehealth is enabling patient care in new and exciting ways.
The event will be broadcast live via telepresence in NYC, Chicago, Dallas, Andover, MA, Seattle, and Santa Clara, CA.

Bridging the Gaps Concert
Special TelePresence Event
Bridging the Gaps Concert
In association with the Urban Entertainment Institute
With a special appearance by Dr. Maya Angelou
Join us on May 6, 2011, at 11 am, U.S. Pacific Time, for a live broadcast of a TelePresence concert featuring students from Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. Students will share their music, vocal, dance and spoken word talents with each other and the world and have the opportunity to interact with renowned poet and author, Dr. Maya Angelou, acclaimed television and film producer, Norman Lear, and legendary casting director, Reuben Cannon. This concert will demonstrate how TelePresence can be used as a tool to bridge gaps in education, enable 21st century learning and preserve art programs in schools.
Participating schools include:
• DreamYard Preparatory School, New York City Department of Education
• Jordan High School and the Los Angeles High School for the Arts, Los Angeles Unified School District
• King College Prep High School, Chicago Public Schools
This event grew out of an innovative partnership between Cisco, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and the Urban Entertainment Institute, who collaborated to provide the first Cisco TelePresence systems in the LAUSD and demonstrated how education can be transformed by integrating the arts, academics and technology.
In a recent press release IVCi showcased our work with Global Writes, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote literacy, communication and collaboration among young people through the integration of performing arts and technology resources.
The press release covered our donation of Managed Video Experience bridging time to Global Writes’ poetry slam. But that is only half of the story. The work that Global Writes is doing with students in schools throughout NY and the country is nothing short of awe inspiring. IVCi has had the privilege to work with this organization for many years to bring video conferencing technology to schools along with the training and curriculum development to make it succeed.
At the most recent TED Talk, Global Writes highlighted their work with these students. The video profiles their methodology and ends with a live video performance from one of Global Writes’ poetry slam schools. Check it out!
