Steve Gleason, Scott Fujita to speak at Social Innovation Summit at UN on Thursday


Former Saints players Steve Gleason and Scott Fujita are scheduled to speak the Social Innovation Summit at the United Nations on Thursday in New York.

More than 200 executives and deep-pocketed philanthropists are expected to attend the two-day private forum, which focuses on building partnerships and identifying potential solutions to the world's largest social challenges.
 
The title of the Gleason-Fujita session is "Awesome Ain't Easy: Technology as a Cure." Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber will moderate the session, which will identify and discuss ways technology can enhance the lives of people who have been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
 
Gleason was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, in January, 2011. Fujita is in his third season with the Cleveland Browns
