Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong Unveils Medicines Manhattan Project at Arianna Huffington’s Newly Launched World Post at World Economic Forum

Today at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, The World Post announced that Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong assumed the role of contributing editor in healthcare and technology to the newly launched publication. The World Post will combine the best of traditional journalism with the best of an open media and new technologies. Created by Huffington Post's own Arianna Huffington and billionaire investor Nicolas Berggruen, this publication offers exclusively global news to a global audience with featured perspectives provided by major global leaders, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Yo-Yo Ma, and Larry Summers.

“We’re delighted that Patrick has accepted in joining The World Post as a contributing editor for health and technology,” said Arianna Huffington. “As a physician, philanthropist and entrepreneur, he’ll bring a unique perspective and expertise to some of the most pressing issues facing us as individuals and countries, from the ways technology can improve our well-being in a hyper-connected world to the moral urgency of creating a healthcare system that’s both more effective and more humane."

The World Post editorship will enable Dr. Soon-Shiong to share with millions of readers cutting-edge technological advancements in healthcare. In his first editorial contribution, Soon-Shiong unveiled the urgent need to launch Medicines Manhattan Project. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/patrick-soonshiong/medicines-manhattan-proje_b_4623864.html?utm_hp_ref=world
