Description: Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series

Ebola, swine flu, drug-resistant tuberculosis, diarrheal diseases, and just about anything carried by mosquitoes… These are but a few of the infectious diseases that keep Drs. Fauci and Glass awake at night. Oh, and ticks, too. Threats are everywhere.

Every day, it seems, brings outbreaks and the potential for a pandemic. And yet, remarkably, scientists and healthcare providers on the frontlines manage to keep billions of people relatively safe. This Demystifying Medicine lecture by two of the biggest names in global health will provide a broad perspective on the myriad infectious diseases that affect each and every one of us, in countries rich and poor. Pathogens know no borders. You will learn, too, about roles for yourself in preparing for the next pandemic, in whatever form in might take.

The Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series is designed to help bridge the gap between advances in biology and their applications to major human diseases. The lectures include presentations of patients, pathology, diagnosis, and therapy in the context of major diseases and current research. All clinicians, trainees including fellows, medical students, Ph.D. students, and other healthcare and research professionals are welcome to attend.
