What Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Told Dr. Eric Topol About His Interest In Healthcare

The world of medical philanthropy got a big shot in the arm when Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, announced in September that they were committing $3 billion to “cure, prevent or manage all disease” by the end of the century.
While that is a benefit to researchers, a tantalizing tidbit of information that Dr. Eric Topol shared at the Techonomy Health conference at Half Moon Bay, California on Wednesday, shows that Zuckerberg has more than medical philanthropy in mind. He appears to be also interested in investing in novel technology and, indeed, also be an early adopter himself.
