Today on the show is our very first interview with TED Talk speaker, author, and epidemiologist Elizabeth Pisani.
Here’s her bio in her own words:
Just now, Elizabeth Pisani researches the link between bad medicines and
antimicrobial resistance, uses the principles of infectious disease epidemiology to
look at the spread of religious fundamentalism and corruption, and works with a
multi-ethnic orchestra to turn global disease statistics into music.
She has degrees in classical Chinese, medical demography and infectious disease epidemiology, and sometimes writes books about things inspire and annoy her, such as Indonesia and the HIV industry. She’s still trying to decide what to do when she grows up.
In Today’s Episode
- What brought Elizabeth to Indonesia?
- What is the “Just say Yes Policy?”
- Her work formerly as a journalist and now as epidemiologist
- Why Indonesia is an incredible country to travel to
- Her crazy life growing up
- And much more!
Listen to the episode
There’s a few bits of Indonesian, but if you dont’ speak it, it doesn’t ruin the experience.
Her book is called Indonesia Etc. and you can check it out on amazon. It is truly one of the best books I’ve read, and my most favorite purchase in the year 2017!
You can find more on Elizabeth and her work by her website.
