“You still need to study,” she explained. “But you can also have everything you need in front of you.”

Part of the Rohatyn Center’s Future of the Past Series, this lecture by Timothy P. Lahey is not to be missed.
Timothy P. Lahey, Director of Clinical Ethics, Infectious Disease Physician, and Professor at the University of Vermont’s Larner College of Medicine, will deliver a lecture titled “HIV Is a Mirror: How a Virus Helps Us See Ourselves More Clearly” at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9 at the Robert A. Jones ’59 House Conference Room. As a part of the ongoing Future of the Past lecture series at the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, this talk seeks to bridge the gap between the contemporary and historical in order to provoke meaningful discussion about the future of infectious disease prevention. Dr. Lahey will also address the striking parallels that arise between human biology and culture as they relate to the HIV epidemic, from the ways the immune system and our culture distinguish self from non-self to the ways social exploitation and viral mutability complicate our epidemic response, in hopes that they allow us to see ourselves better and be prepared for the next modern epidemic
Tuesday, April 9 at 4:30 pm in the RAJ conference room

In times of major public health medical crisis, hospitals and clinics can get quickly overwhelmed, and Points of Distribution (PODS) for the delivery of medication are set up throughout the community.
Middlebury College was approached by the Emergency Preparedness Unit of the Vermont Department of Public Health to set up and test a mock POD.
On April 9, 2019 the Department of Health will run 100 volunteers through the POD to test their readiness in the event of a public health emergency and Emergency Preparedness Specialist Dennis Pelletier is recruiting volunteers to go through the POD.
Shifts start at 9 :00 am and last half an hour. You are also welcome to stay for the entire exercise and make multiple passes through the POD. It will be a very easy task of just receiving mock medication with the POD staff directing you throughout the entire process.
Date: April 9, 2019
Time: 30 minute commitment of participants starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 11:30 a.m.
Location: Peterson Family Athletic Complex / Kenyon Arena concourse level
Contact: Dennis Pelletier, Vermont Department of Health, Emergency Preparedness Specialist, Middlebury District Office, Phone: (802) 734-0114
