Larry Brilliant, MD, MPH, Chair of the Skoll Global Threats Fund in San Francisco and former Vice President and Executive Director of Google, is slated to give the opening keynote address at The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery 2017 Annual Meeting (ASDS) on Oct. 5-8 in Chicago.
Dr. Brilliant is board-certified in preventive medicine and public health, and his recent awards include the “TED Prize,” TIME Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People,” “International Public Health Hero” and two honorary doctorates.
In his new memoir “Sometimes Brilliant: The Impossible Adventure of a Spiritual Seeker and Visionary Physician Who Helped Conquer the Worst Disease in History,” Dr. Brilliant reflects on his extraordinary experiences as a doctor, innovator, philanthropist and cultural revolutionary. As he revisits his encounters with prominent leaders and icons including Martin Luther King, Jr., Steve Jobs and the Dali Lama, he offers transformative messages of wisdom and compassion that encourage readers to aspire for a better, more brilliant existence.
ASDS attendees are invited to join Dr. Brilliant after his keynote lecture for a book signing in the Exhibit Hall’s Resource Center at noon on Oct. 5. The first 100 participants will receive a free copy of “Sometimes Brilliant.”
