On October 1, Nadim Mahmud & Josh Nesbit of Medic Mobile delivered the 2012 The Iscol Family Program for Leadership Development in Public Service Lecture, From Ideas to Action: Technology and Global Health. Medic Mobile uses cell phones to disseminate medical information to remote populations without access to medical care, including parts of Africa and Southeast Asia.

This year the program format was a panel discussion with the invited speakers and  Jill Iscol. Following the panel conversation and Q&A, Jill Iscol signed copies of her book, Hearts on Fire: Twelve Stories of Today's Visionaries Igniting Vision into Action. Medic Mobile's story is included in the book. The paperback and enriched e-book editions of Hearts on Fire are being published in January 2013.
