    Diseases leading public health authorities now predict as
    inevitable a pandemic of influenza, triggered by bird flu
    and expected to lead to millions of deaths around the
    globe. The influenza virus has existed for millions of
    years as an innocuous intestinal virus of wild ducks. What
    turned a harmless waterborne duck virus into a killer? In
    an engaging multimedia presentation, Dr. Michael Greger
    traces the human role in the evolution of this virus. In
    the face of the coming pandemic, Dr. Greger reveals what
    we can do to protect our families, and what society can do
    to reduce the likelihood of such potential catastrophes in
    the future.

    Michael Greger, M.D., is Director of Public Health and
    Animal Agriculture at The Humane Society of the United
    States. An internationally recognized lecturer, he has
    presented at the Conference on World Affairs, the National
    Institutes of Health, and the Bird Flu Summit, among
    countless other symposia and institutions, and was invited
    as an expert witness in defense of Oprah Winfrey at the
    infamous "meat defamation" trial. Dr. Greger is a graduate
    of the Cornell University School of Agriculture and the
    Tufts University.
