Larry Brilliant Talks Pandemics at Dreamforce 2012

Our CEO, Larry Brilliant, gave a keynote address at the recent Dreamforce event in San Francisco.  He focused on how digital disease surveillance has been an important addition to public health over the last 15 years, and explored options for new ways to leverage technology to combat pandemic risks – including through participatory surveillance (check out our Flu Near You initiative) by the general public.  The talk provides a great overview of the history of disease surveillance, including some compelling personal stories from Larry’s work on the smallpox eradication team in India and Bangladesh in the 1970s.  Watch it below.
