Mark Pendergrast spoke about his book Inside the Outbreaks: The Elite Medical Detectives of the Epidemic Intelligence Service (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010). It is an examination of the Center for Disease Control’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS), which is called on whenever there is a serious outbreak in the U.S. or around the world. EIS, established in 1951, is credited with eliminating or helping to control threats posed by such diseases as wild polio, cholera, and smallpox. During his illustrated presentation Mr. Pendergrast showed a short video he recorded in Niger. He also responded to questions from members of the audience. This event of the 6th annual Burlington Book Festival was held at the Main Street Landing’s Performing Arts Center. close
