Combating Microbial Terrorists: How to End Our Preparedness Stalemate

April 13, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


2017 Spring Lecture Series
Speaker: Julie Gerberding, MD
President, Merck Vaccines

From anthrax to Zika, the new millennium has challenged us with new and re-emerging infectious disease threats. Each outbreak prompts a reactive response, short-term resource investments, and eventual codification of “lessons learned.” Dr. Gerberding will describe how health protection science, government leadership, and social mobilization must work together if we are to ever achieve the vision of global health security.
