Last year, CIDRAP Director Michael Osterholm, PhD along with Mark Olshaker released the very interesting and relevant book, Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Killer Germs.
I talked to “Bad News Mike” last April on the radio show about some of the most important public health issues addressed in the book to include bioterrorism, vaccines, antibiotic resistance and pandemic influenza, to name a few.
A great storyteller with vast experience in infectious disease epidemiology, Osterholm covered these topics with experience, zeal, knowledge and never pulling any punches.
As one Amazon reviewer writes: Fabulous read from a great writer/scientist/public health warrior!
