Lifesavers Speakers Series: Unseen Enemy

Thursday, October 27

7:00 PM

$10/regular admission

$5/student and senior 


In 2016, why do epidemics still exist? Why are new epidemics, like Zika and Ebola, becoming more widespread and making headlines? Join the Vilna Shul, Boston's Center for Jewish Culture for an interactive program with Boston Medical Center Infectious Disease doctors Elke Muhlberger and Nahid Bhadelia and documentary film maker Janet Tobias that explores the root of such epidemics and what we, as a first world country, can do to combat them. Special clips of the documentary Unseen Enemy, which examines the factors that have contributed to the emergence and re-emergence of viruses and bacteria, will be shown. 

 

Registration is now closed. Walk-ins welcome.

 

Sponsored by Jason Weiner and Nicole Zatlyn, the Lifesavers Speakers Series features stories from people saving lives and making a difference every day.
