The End of Epidemics, by Jonathan Quick '73

January 31, 2018 11:30 AM | Anonymous

Classmate Jonathan Quick's new book The End of Epidemics: The Looming Threat to Humanity and How to Stop It is now available. "There seems little doubt that humanity is heading into a century of epidemics and pandemics," he writes.  "We're moving too slowly with too few resources to have a flicker of hope to out run the 'big one,' nor to adequately protect against regional and migrating Ebola, Zika, yellow fever and other epidemic threats.  Scientists and public health professionals know what's needed.  But they need our help to build a movement that can achieve large-scale, widespread, lasting progress toward ending devastating epidemics and pandemics.  As a family physician who's seen the agony of avoidable death in faces of those left behind, and as a father of three grown daughters, I would like nothing better than for us to bring this movement to life!"

Book cover of The End of EpidemicsTwo pieces related to the book were published last week: Wall Street Journal, An Action Plan for Averting the Next Flu Pandemic, and TIME Magazine: Our Complacency About the Flu is Killing Us.  An updated version of the TIME piece appeared in yesterday's print version.
