In 1900, infectious diseases were the leading cause of death in the U.S. By 1997, infectious diseases accounted for only 5% of deaths. But emerging new diseases, increasing antibiotic resistance, and declining immunization rates threaten to reverse this trend. What does the future hold for our children? Dr. Michael Parry will discuss this and more.
