The Washington Post brings together epidemiologist Christopher Golden, PhD, and field scientist Kendra Phelps, PhD, to discuss National Geographic’s new series about how scientists are piecing together cultural, medical and environmental factors to trace the origins of deadly diseases and help stave off future pandemics. Tune in on Friday, Oct. 30 at 4:00 p.m. ET.

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed how vulnerable the world population is to the next deadly virus. Understanding how these viruses spread through human populations and where they come from is vital to prevent the next global public health crisis.
