Join us at the Stillwater Public Library on Thursday, April 25 at 6 p.m. for "Bad News Mike". Drawing on the latest medical science and hard-earned epidemiological lessons, Dr. Mike Osterholm’s recently published book, Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Killer Germs, explores in detail the resources and programs we need to develop if we are to keep ourselves safe from infectious disease. Only by understanding the challenges we face can we prevent the unthinkable from becoming the inevitable.
Dr. Mike Osterholm is Professor and Chair in Public Health, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, Professor in the Division of Environmental Health Sciences, and an adjunct in the Medical School at the University of Minnesota. He is the author of Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Killer Germs, a 2017 book which details pressing infectious disease threats and prevention strategies, including global flu pandemic as a major concern. Dr. Osterholm is an international leader, guest lecturer and the author of more than 315 papers, abstracts and book chapters.
