This year’s conference will discuss and debate the threat of pandemics from diseases that are driven by human decisions.

The O’Brien conference will welcome GHI Director Jonathan Patz as a speaker. Patz and fellow panelists will discuss climate change’s role in the spread of diseases, and the ethics of steps such as the genetic modification of animals that carry disease.

The conference will feature the journalism of 2016-17 O’Brien Fellow Mark Johnson and associated graduate and undergraduate Marquette students. Johnson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning health and science reporter at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, used the fellowship to examine the growing threat posed by diseases that jump from animals to humans.
