What does it take to defeat infectious diseases in the 21st century? The American Museum of Natural History and The Carter Center invite you to explore the innovative collaborative approaches being developed around the world to combat disease. Join former President Jimmy Carter, who will be joined by Dr. Jane Carlton, director of the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology at New York University, Dr. Donald Hopkins, vice president of health programs at The Carter Center, and parasitologist and Museum Curator Mark Siddall for a dynamic conversation that will unravel the science and politics of disease eradication.
