Sonia Shah is another bright star in the constellation of science speakers! Her presentation was outstanding -- she has the eye of a journalist, the mind of a scientist, and the heart of a humanitarian.
...read the book this weekend (or rather, I inhaled it). It's fascinating--elegantly written and superbly well-researched--a poignant and important reminder of malaria's relentless human toll.
It was a great lecture–the kind of subject that makes us better world citizens, expands the world-view of our students–and Ms. Shah was an animated, engaging lecturer.
