As director of All of Us, Dishman leads the agency’s efforts to build a national research program of one million or more US participants to advance precision medicine. Previously, he was an Intel Fellow & Vice President of the Health & Life Sciences Group at Intel Corporation, where he was responsible for driving global strategy, research & development, product & platform development, and policy initiatives for health & life science solutions. His organization focused on growth opportunities for Intel in health information technology, genomics & personalized medicine, consumer wellness, and care coordination technologies.

Dishman is widely recognized as a global leader in health care innovation with specific expertise in home and community-based technologies & services for chronic disease management and independent living. Trained as a social scientist, he is known for pioneering innovation techniques that incorporate anthropology, ethnography, & other social science methods into the development of new technologies. He also brings a unique personal perspective, as a cancer patient for 23 years—finally cured thanks to precision medicine—to drive a person-centric view of health care transformation.

The Joseph Leiter NLM/MLA Lecture was established in 1983 to stimulate intellectual liaison between the MLA & the NLM. Leiter was a major contributor in cancer research at the National Cancer Institute & a leader at NLM as a champion of medical librarians and an informatics pioneer. He served as NLM Associate Director for Library Operations from 1965 to 1983.
