The book describes his experiences over a career of more than 40 years in public health emergency response and disaster relief in hot zones around the world, including the Afghan-Pakistani border, sub-Saharan Africa, Vietnam, Iran and the former Yugoslavia.
Giannone will speak at 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 9.
