Nadim Mahmud and Josh Nesbit, two of Medic Mobile's founders, will deliver the 11th annual Iscol Family Program for Leadership Development in Public Service lecture.

The goal of the founders and the Medic Mobile team is to revolutionize health care around the world by making the benefits of health care information networks available to clinics and health workers in rural Africa, Central America, and South Asia.

Medic Mobile develops and extends software applications for health care information. These networking services include supporting community health workers in the field, coordinating services and referrals, facilitating data collection and logistics, and mapping health services.

The Iscol Family Program for Leadership Development in Public Service is endowed by Ken ('60) and Jill Iscol of the Iscol Family Foundation to inspire and educate a new generation of community leaders to tackle the problems that face society, such as poverty, hunger, ignorance, homelessness, and violence. The program brings individuals who have a commitment to social change and public service into contact with Cornell students to help them understand how they can make a significant difference in society as professionals. This lecture is part of the Entrepreneurship and Personal Enterprise Speaker Series.

Jill Iscol, president of the Iscol Family Foundation, will be signing copies of her book Hearts on Fire: Twelve Stories of Today's Visionaries Igniting Vision into Action following the lecture in Kennedy Hall from 8:45 – 9:30PM. 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.
