UP Alumni In The News 10.5.11

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

As you read this post, The UP Experience 2011 is just 3 weeks away! We’ve been waiting all year and can’t believe it’s already here.

As we wait on pins and needles for October 27th we thought we’d take a closer look at what some of our UP 11 speakers have been up to this week:

Dr. Anthony Atala was featured on the CBS News in New York for his incredible, pioneering work in growing human organs and the incredible opportunities this breakthrough technology stands to give the thousands on transplant lists in the U.S. His talk at UP11 is definitely one not to be missed.

Also featured on CBS News this week, fellow UP 11 speaker Katie Linendoll, talking about her predictions for yesterday’s big Apple iPhone announcement. See what she expected and if it lined up with the big announcement.

Memory guru Ron White contributed a great actionable memory tip to an interested article produced by Men’s Health and ABC News, “17 Ways to Upgrade Your Whole Life.”

Meanwhile Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy which is revolutionizing education, was interviewed on CNN about how to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math.

Sign UP now to see these incredible innovators on October 27th!
