Dr. Larry Brilliant has spent his career working to improve lives—locally and globally—through his work helping eradicate smallpox with the UN, curing millions of people of blindness with Seva Foundation, and building technologies of the future with Google.org and public tech companies. Now he has written a memoir, Sometimes Brilliant: The Impossible Adventures of a Spiritual Seeker and Visionary Physician Who Helped Conquer the Worst Disease in History, in which he reflects on his extraordinary experiences as a doctor, innovator, philanthropist, and cultural revolutionary.

Join Dr. Brilliant in conversation with Dean Stefano Bertozzi for a candid discussion about his new memoir and insights he has gained from his 50+ year journey across continents, engaging with—and helping to answer—life’s most important questions.
