Part of the Rohatyn Center’s Future of the Past Series, this lecture by Timothy P. Lahey is not to be missed.

He has degrees from Georgetown University (AB), Duke University School of Medicine (MD) and Harvard Medical School (MMSc). He completed clinical training at the University of Utah and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center as well as a research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Partners AIDS Research Center.

He has published in The New York Times and online at The Atlantic, Scientific American, and Health Affairs.
About the lecture: Since its discovery in 1981, the HIV epidemic has been intensely instructive about both human biology and culture. There have been striking parallels between those insights, 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. We will discuss these parallels in hopes they help us see ourselves better and thus get prepared for the next modern plague.
