In the Spring of 2017, at a release party for his book: Sometimes Brilliant he sketched out his extraordinary voyage from civil rights movement, to medical training to helping out as physician during the occupation of Alcatraz by the Indians of All Tribes.

In the Bay Area Larry Brilliant connected with the psychedelic and music counterculture, and followed the hippie trail from London over the Khyber Pass to India - with his wife Elaine, Wavy Gravy and the Hog Farm commune.

One of India’s best known spiritual teachers, Neem Karoli Baba, told him his destiny was to work for the World Health Organization to help eradicate smallpox. Larry Brilliant became a key participant in eliminating that 10,000-year-old disease that killed half a billion people in the 20th century alone. Smallpox was declared eradicated in 1980.

On March 24, 2020, Larry Brilliant was interviewed by Dr. Daniel Kraft, Chair for Medicine, Singularity University
Brilliant currently serves as the Chairman of the Advisory Board for Ending Pandemics. He also works with the charitable organizations launched by the major technology corporations such as Google and the Skoll Group.
