Description: Each year, the National Library of Medicine and Medical Library Association jointly sponsor the Joseph Leiter Lecture, whose purpose is to stimulate intellectual liaison between the two organizations on topics relating to biomedical communication.

New and emergent diseases -- AIDS, mad cow disease, SARS -- are an increasingly frequent occurrence. The explosive growth of often destitute urban populations and the unprecedented growth of travel portend the development and spead of other infectious agents in numbers and at a pace hitherto unknown. To know sooner and more explicitly what these challenges are and to have capabilities for dealing with them is a new challenge with potentially serious implications.
