LA Billionaire Soon-Shiong: World Needs Medical Manhattan Project

Los Angeles-based biotech billionaire Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong said Thursday that the world needs a "medical Manhattan Project" to tackle the issues of health, surrounding issues around a divide in health treatment between the rich and the poor, the risks of inaapropriate care, and more. Soon-Shiong said he's starting a Manhattan Project of medicine via his contributions to a new publishing effort from Arianna Huffington, the World Post -- a new publishing effort aimed at global news, and featuring contributions from major global leaders. Soon-Shiong says he is creating a "National Information Health Highway for medical records" via his companies, which he says is the equivalent of the Manhattan Project.
