Summary
In this memoir, Guinan describes 12 stories of her experiences in dealing with smallpox, AIDS, and other outbreaks. She presents them as a series of investigative “cases,” detailing how she worked with an outbreak of a bacterial blood infection in the intensive care unit of a large military hospital, how she joined India's Smallpox Eradication Program in 1974, her research on herpes, her work with Afghan refugees in Pakistan, her work with HIV/AIDS, and her work on a listeriosis outbreak in the milk industry
