On the 100th anniversary of the devastating pandemic of 1918, Dr. Jeremy Brown, Director of Emergency Care Research at the National Institutes of Health, discusses his book Influenza. In it, he explores the complex history of the flu virus, from the origins of the Great Flu that killed millions to vexing questions such as: whether we are prepared for the next epidemic and how close we are to finding a cure. A book signing follows the program.
