Thank you to the Washington Independent Review of Books, A Lovely Bookshelf on the Wall and the Boston Globe for their reviews of The Remedy.
Tuberculosis was once the most feared disease on earth. In the 19th century, effectively every man, woman and child carried TB. One in four died of it.
Today, TB is curable, but efforts to find, treat and cure everyone are insufficient. Of the 9 million people a year who get sick with TB, 3 million don't get the treatment they need.
I've been following the #WorldTBDay conversation today and wanted to share highlights from the many dedicated organizations working to end this horrible disease.
I was honored to be interviewed for the TEDMED Blog Visionary Series and to discuss my work as Entrepreneur in Residence at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on the Flip the Clinic and Visualizing Health projects.
I recently spoke with Workforce about what Weight Watchers can teach us about health and what employers need to learn in order to change employees' health behaviors.
TED published a new story about the impact of my TED talk on redesigning medical data and the role it played in inspiring me to found the health technology company Iodine.
In the fall, I emceed Pitch Day, an RWJF event to discover innovative ideas for solving health and health care challenges. Go inside Pitch Day by watching RWJF's video of the event.
Just a quick note about my next book, The Remedy, which will be out in early 2014, published by Penguin/Gotham. It's about the invention of modern medicine, the pursuit of scientific glory, and the attempt to cure the world's most deadly disease, tuberculosis (also known, at the time, as consumption).
Since I left WIRED in January, everybody’s been asking me: What’s next? Today, finally, I can start answering that question. I’m thrilled to announce that I’m joining two amazing organizations.
