Friday, October 19, 6:00 pm – Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic

If you were riveted by The Hot Zone, this Harvard Museum of Natural History program is for you.  Science author David Quammen explores how a litany of pandemic diseases like Ebola, SARS, and Hendra share a single pattern: they are transmitted to humans by bugs that originate in wild animals. He will speak on Friday, October 19 beginning at 6 pm, and a book signing will follow. Free and open to the public, Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street. Free parking in the 52 Oxford Street garage.
