Laurie Garrett, a Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist author of The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance, has won two Polk Awards and a Peabody Award, in addition to the Pulitzer Prize, which she received in 1996 for her coverage on the Ebola outbreak as a reporter for Newsday.
Garrett, a member of the World Economic Forum Global Health Security Advisory Board, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the National Association for Science Writers, has also authored Betrayal of Trust: The Collapse of Global Public Health and I Heard the Sirens Scream: How Americans Responded to the 9/11 and Anthrax Attacks.
Endowed by the late Irving H. Jurow, the College of Arts and Science’s premier annual lecture is designed to bring leading public intellectuals and cultural figures to the university community.
