Something Ventured -- Silicon Valley Podcast
#37 Daniel Carucci -- "Global Health"

Dan Carucci, M.D., Ph. D. has served in the US Navy -- as head of its malaria program. He has served as director of science for the Foundation for the National Institutes for Health.  He has also spent time with the Gates Foundation, and escorting billionaires around Africa to study various health initiatives.  As wealth is created in Silicon Valley, many turn to funding large scale global health projects (perhaps most notably, Bill Gates).  In this podcast we discuss the effectiveness -- and pitfalls -- of global health programs, and their billionaire funders.
