SHELLY BAER Shelly Baer currently works at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine's Mailman Center for Child Development as Coordinator of the Emerging Transformational Leadership Program and is Director of Understanding the Family Perspective. Ms. Baer educates audiences about disabled women, body image and sexuality, and is expanding her voice as a woman with a disability to reframe society's narrow definitions of self-esteem and beauty.TEDx In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
