Dr. Jennifer Gerres, a second-year resident with the Program was chosen as one of the local social media personalities to report on the Cleveland Clinic's "Ideas for Tomorrow" event, with keynote speaker Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve. 

Ben Bernanke, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, spoke to a group of over seven-hundred Greater Clevelanders as part of the Cleveland Clinic's "Ideas for Tomorrow" speaker series last Wednesday. In a prepared speech, the Chairmen spoke about the lessons the US could learn from emerging economies. The speech was followed by a thirty-minute question and answer session, which quickly turned into a crowd favorite as he answered each question deliberately and often with wit. The event was attended by national and local media, as well as local social media personalities, who used such modalities as live-blogging and Twitter to relay the event.
