CFI-Ottawa presents: Pandemic disease - should we be worried?

The Centre for Inquiry - Ottawa presents the following event.

Epidemiologist and Less Wrong member Alex Demarsh will discuss the history of pandemics and future risk, a topic that was originally scheduled for the Sunday morning session at the Eschaton 2012 conference.

The talk will gauge current pandemic risk by examining historic events, trends, and drivers, and examining which of these determinants of risk have changed, are currently changing, or are likely to change in the near future.

    Great meeting. This was my first time attending a meeting like this. The speaker was well informed and prepared and the questions and comments were by and large intelligent and relevant.
    I will be back.
