An Epidemiologist's Perspective on the Coronavirus
Online Program

On April 1st we'll hear from epidemiologist and former Seattle 4 Rotary member Ann Marie Kimball who will share her insight on the coronavirus. Following her presentation on the status of the pandemic and how long it might last, members will have the opportunity to have their questions answered. To facilitate a Q&A, this program will be held entirely on Zoom. More details on how to participate will be shared in this week's Totem Newsletter. 

During her tenure at UW, Dr Kimball founded and directed the APEC Emerging Infections Network, and led research and training programs in Peru and Thailand. Her research focused on global trade and emerging infections and earned her a Fulbright New Century Scholars award and a Guggenheim Scholars award. She has also served as the technical and strategic lead for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation surveillance strategy formation.

She is the author of "Risky Trade: Infectious Diseases in an Era of Global Trade" and has authored numerous scientific publications and served on several Institute of Medicine panels. Most recently she led the Rockefeller Foundation evaluation of their global disease surveillance network portfolio. She is a fellow in the American College of Preventive Medicine and member of the National Biosurveillance Advisory group, Centers for Disease Control.
