BPL Event: Seema Yasmin, MD — Inside the Outbreaks

The Boston Public Library welcomes Emmy Award-winning medical journalist and CNN analyst Dr. Seema Yasmin for an online conversation moderated by BPL President David Leonard. This program, presented in partnership with the GBH Forum Network, is part of both the Lowell Lecture Series sponsored by the Lowell Institute and the BPL's Repairing America Series.

What happens at the epicenter of an epidemic? How do disease detectives track down patient zero, find the source of contagion, and stop the spread of disease? As an Officer in the Epidemic Intelligence Service, Dr. Yasmin was tasked with hunting diseases and chasing epidemics. Inside prisons, across border towns, and within the walls of hospitals and workplaces, she traced microbes and worked to protect communities. Pulling back the curtain on the inner workings of epidemic investigations, Dr. Yasmin tells stories from the front lines of global public health to demonstrate how humans are increasingly connected and epidemics are the new normal.
