Dr. Mohamed Bailor Barrie never thought he’d become a doctor. Growing up in poverty in northern Sierra Leone, he saw from a young age how quality health care helps people live better lives. Now, after helping his country combat Ebola and COVID-19, Dr. Barrie has become one of Sierra Leone’s health leaders. His story is truly inspiring.
It’s always fun to talk to someone who loves books and learning as much as I do! Thanks, @ArielBissett, for asking great questions about such an important topic and to @RotmanSchool and @Indigo for hosting the conversation.
For decades, Australian researcher Ruth Bishop led global efforts to combat rotavirus. Her discovery of the disease helped pave the way for the development of several rotavirus vaccines and the delivery of these and other lifesaving vaccines to the world’s poorest countries. During our current pandemic, Ruth’s life is a reminder of the importance of scientific research to uncover unknown pathogens and the power of vaccines to prevent suffering and save lives.
I love talking to @DaxShepard and @mlpadman. Thank you @chihumanities for hosting my Chicago book event, and thanks to everyone who joined our conversation about climate change.
When I talk to people about climate change, I almost always get asked the same question: What can I do to help? Here are some actions you can take to move us closer to a zero-carbon future.
Thank you for the fantastic conversation about climate change at my virtual book event, @SavannahGuthrie! And thanks to @HarvardBookstore for hosting us.
I wrote How to Avoid a Climate Disaster because we’re at a crucial moment in time. My new book (link in bio) outlines a series of steps we can take reach zero emissions.
I had a great time asking and answering more big questions with @rashidajones and everyone who joined our (virtual) climate book talk hosted by DC’s @sixthandi.
How to Avoid a Climate Disaster is available now. I hope you’ll check out the book, but more importantly, I hope you’ll do what you can to help keep the planet livable for generations to come.
I enjoyed spending time with @andersoncooper recently in Seattle. We talked about why I’m optimistic that the world can get to zero greenhouse gas emissions and avoid a climate disaster.
COVID-19 has cost lives, sickened millions, and thrust the global economy into a devastating recession. But hope is on the horizon.
Just as World War II was the defining event for my parents’ generation, the COVID-19 pandemic will define the generations living through it right now. In our new Annual Letter (link in bio), @melindafrenchgates and I talk about how we hope the experience we’ve all lived through over the last year will lead to a long-term change in the way people think about global health.
One of the benefits of being 65 is that I’m eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. I got my first dose this week, and I feel great. Thank you to all of the scientists, trial participants, regulators, and frontline healthcare workers who got us to this point.
@yuval_noah_harari is one of my favorite authors. In this week’s podcast, @RashidaJones and I talk to him about why humanity is so willing to believe falsehoods and what these lies tell us about ourselves—both as individuals and as a society.
Twenty-five years ago, I published my first book, The Road Ahead. At the time, people were wondering where digital technology was headed and how it would affect our lives, and I wanted to share my thoughts—and my enthusiasm. I had fun making some predictions about breakthroughs in computing, and especially the Internet, that were coming in the next couple of decades. You can find out what I got right and what I got wrong at the link in my bio.
In the second episode of our podcast, @RashidaJones and I ask a big question that has never felt more urgent: is inequality inevitable? We spoke with Compton mayor @Ajalbrown and Harvard economist Raj Chetty about what it’ll take to build a more equal society.
Nearly forty million people around the world have Alzheimer’s or dementia today. I lost my dad to Alzheimer’s two months ago, and I wouldn’t wish that experience on anyone. With a coalition of partners, we’re launching the Alzheimer’s Disease Data Initiative, or ADDI. My hope is that the data-sharing facilitated by our partnership will move us closer to a world where no one has to watch someone they love suffer from this awful disease.

I’m teaming up with @rashidajones for a new podcast limited series starting Monday. Each week, we’ll talk about some of the biggest issues facing our world with special guests including authors, experts, and friends. Learn more at the link in my bio.
