#MLKDay has long been a national day of service. As we celebrate the first without Congressman John Lewis, I'm thinking about his powerful call to remain hopeful about the future as we work to make our country—and our world—a better place.

The 2020 #MaddoxPrize is jointly awarded to Anthony Fauci and Salim S. Abdool Karim

Standing up for science has never been more important. Congratulations to Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Salim Abdool Karim on receiving this honor.

I've been reaching out to many of the people who supported Airbnb in our earliest days to say thanks. While there are a number of people who believed in us, without Ron Conway, Airbnb wouldn't be what it is today.

I've known and learned from @RonConway for more than 40 years. I'm glad to see @svangel team up with @bchesky to mentor and support companies working to create more economic empowerment opportunities for people across the world.

This book has nothing to do with viruses or pandemics. But it is surprisingly relevant for these times. @exlarson provides a brilliant and gripping account of another era of widespread anxiety: the years 1940 and 1941.

Monoclonal antibodies are one of the most promising treatments we have for COVID-19, thanks in large part to R&D by Canadian scientists. Because of their generosity, people all around the world will have access to this potentially lifesaving treatment.

Like many people, I’ve tried to deepen my understanding of systemic racism in recent months. If you’re interested in learning more about the lives caught up in our country's justice system, I highly recommend @thenewjimcrow by Michelle Alexander.

A special thanks to @BillGates for stopping by The #CarlosWatsonShow. It was a pleasure to catch up again and I was reminded once more of the incredible leadership you have shown on #COVID19 & #healthcare. Feel #Grateful & #hopeful! Enjoyed our talk!

Quoted @MSuzman

The world now has much of the science it needs to end this pandemic, and as regulators start to put their stamp of approval on it, the field of action is widening. So how do we deliver this science equitably?

We must ensure these innovations reach everyone, not just those who can afford to pay. Our newest commitment to the COVID-19 response is our largest to date, but only a fraction of what is needed.

Who helped save about 200 million lives since 1979, more than two World Wars? Congrats #BillFoege & #ViktorZdanov on the 2020 #FutureOfLifeAward for eradicating smallpox! Please watch
@BillGates, #AnthonyFauci & #JenniferDoudna celebrate them Wed noon ET:

Bill Foege and Viktor Zdanov are phenomenal examples of what it means to harness science for global health. A well-deserved honor.

Are we actually making progress on climate change? Can we really prevent a climate disaster? In this week’s podcast, Rashida and I take on perhaps our biggest question yet with Pulitzer Prize-winning author @ElizKolbert.

This new quiz from @Gapminder is a clever way to fight misconceptions and “upgrade your worldview” about the incredible progress the world has made toward the Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, fight inequality, and stop climate change:

Since 2000, the #malaria community has worked together to prevent 1.5 billion cases of #malaria & save 7.6 million lives. This tremendous progress is cause for celebration, but we must keep working to #endmalaria.
