Dr. Larry Brilliant honored with The UCLA Medal

Dr. Larry Brilliant received The UCLA Medal on March 3 at the home of Chancellor Gene Block for his landmark contributions to public health and his deep commitment to making our world a healthier and better place.

Dr. Brilliant was the youngest member of the World Health Organization’s team that set out to rid the world of smallpox, he founded the Seva Foundation to give back sight sight to millions of people suffering from curable and preventable blindness, and he currently serves as the President of the Skoll Global Threats Fund working to confront global public health issues including climate change and pandemics.

We are inspired by Larry’s commitment to mentoring and supporting the next generation of global public health leaders, and we are thrilled to honor him.
