“Gripping stories, filled with details that are in equal part delicious and disgusting, but always fascinating.”

—Lisa Sanders, MD, author of Every Patient Tells a Story and the New York Times Magazine “Diagnosis” column

HIV/AIDS researcher Dr. Warren Andiman will discuss his recent book “Animal Viruses and Humans: A Narrow Divide.” Dr. Andiman traces the history of eight zoonotic viruses–deadly microbes that have made the leap directly from animals to human populations. Some of these viruses include Ebola, SARS, and Rabies. He illustrates the labor intensive and fascinating detective work that infectious disease specialists must do to uncover the source of an outbreak. Copies of his book will be available for sale and signing.

Guilford resident Warren Andiman, MD, is Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics and Epidemiology at the Yale Schools of Medicine and Public Health.  He is a student of infectious diseases, with a particular interest in those maladies caused by viruses.

This program was rescheduled due to inclement weather in November.
