OUR PENDEMIC FUTURE IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING WORLD
December 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Dr. James Shepherd, Associate Professor at Yale University School of Medicine, and Attending Physician at Yale New Haven Hospital will discuss how the confluence of a warming planet, urbanization and a declining natural world are the perfect recipe for future pandemics. Dr. Shepherd has spent the last 2 decades as an infectious disease specialist, treating HIV and TB, and managing disease outbreaks and public health systems in Africa and India. He lives in Sharon, CT where he grows hops and raises livestock, giving him a broad perspective on the changing environment and the place of our species amongst the community of animals, plants, and pathogens.
A free video of the forum will be posted on our website several days after the event.
