The Art of Saving a Life, an incredible virtual and live artistic exhibit sponsored by the Gates Foundation about the critical role of vaccines in achieving health for all, is her brainchild. The project involved forty world-class artists of multiple genres who created original works of art related to the importance of vaccines. Previously only exhibited in Berlin at the Global Vaccine Alliance, the Art of Saving a Life was featured at TEDMED 2015.
