Time: 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Place: Humanist Hall, 390 27th Street, Oakland

Dr. Greger is currently the Director of Public Health and Animal

the recently released “Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching,” and has

humans, through our interaction with animals, have played in the course
of the disease. In the face of this potentially catastrophic pandemic,
Greger will discuss what we can do to protect ourselves and our
families from this virus, and how we can prevent the development of
similar viruses in the future.
