"The Lunchbox Series" presents: "Possible Pandemics: Ecology, Evolution and Opportunity" a lecture with Professor Marion Fass.
Influenza killed millions of people in 1918; HIV/AIDS continues to take its toll despite research, education and medical advances. These pandemics warn us of challenges we face as climate change and urbanization alter the interactions between humans and other species. The high rate of mutation in viruses make them adaptable pathogens. We will look at new perspectives on ecology, evolution, communication and political will and the surprising concerns about the diseases of the future.
Dec. 5th at 12:10 p.m. Watch the lecture live at Moore Lounge, Pearsons Hall or online at www.beloit.edu/live Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch!
