Dear Life: A Doctor's Story of Love and Loss
'What a remarkable book this is; tender, funny, brave, heartfelt, radiant with love and life, and with the love of life. It brought me often to laughter and - several times - to tears' Robert Macfarlane From the Sunday Times bestselling author of Your Life in My Hands comes this vibrant, tender and deeply personal memoir that finds light and love in the darkest of places. As a specialist in palliative medicine, Dr Rachel Clarke chooses to inhabit a place many people would find too tragic to contemplate. Every day she tries to bring care and comfort to those reaching the end of their lives and to help make dying more bearable. Rachel's training was put to the test in 2017 when her beloved GP father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She learned that nothing - even the best palliative care - can sugar-coat the pain of losing someone you love. And yet, she argues, in a hospice there is more of what matters in life - more love, more strength, more kindness, more joy, more tenderness, more grace, more compassion - than you could ever imagine. For if there is a difference between people who know they are dying and the rest of us, it is simply this: that the terminally ill know their time is running out, while we live as though we have all the time in the world. Dear Life is a book about the vital importance of human connection, by the doctor we would all want by our sides at a time of crisis. It is a love letter - to a father, to a profession, to life itself.

Nanotechnology Based Approaches for Tuberculosis Treatment
Nanotechnology Based Approaches for Tuberculosis Treatment discusses multiple nanotechnology-based approaches which may help overcome persisting limitations of conventional and traditional treatment of Tuberculosis. A quarter of the world's population is infected with Tuberculosis, and despite potentially curative pharmacotherapies being available for over 50 years, Tuberculosis deaths persist, and multidrug-resistant strains of TB are emerging due to prolonged treatment, high pill burden, and low patient compliance. This book summarizes the types of nano drugs, their synthesis, formulation, characterization, and applications, along with the most important administration routes. It also explores recent advances and achievements regarding therapeutic efficacy and provides possible future applications in this field. It directly addresses translational aspects and clinical perspectives of tuberculosis nanomedicine from a comprehensive and multidisciplinary perspective. Nanotechnology Based Approaches for Tuberculosis Treatment will be a useful resource for investigators, pharmaceutical researchers, innovators, and scientists working on technology advancement in the areas of designing targeted therapies, nano scale imaging systems and diagnostic modalities in tuberculosis. This book will also cater to the basic needs of students and new researchers in the fields of tuberculosis and nanomedicine

The Upside of Being Down: The Life of a Teen with Anorexia
The Upside of Being Down shows the winding paths that are the thoughts that go through one's mind, and the debilitating symptoms that come alight with Anorexia Nervosa. Anorexia Nervosa is an illness misunderstood by many. At first glance it is seen as a trivial call for attention, but it is so much more. The Upside of Being Down is a memoir of a teenage survivor of Anorexia written in order to destigmatize this illness so that many more can be treated. Only one in ten sufferers will seek treatment because many people don't conceptualize what eating disorders truly encompass. What may come as a surprise to many, is that weight and looks are the most insignificant part of this illness. Through medical appointments and unique experiences, Carolina recounts the thoughts and actions that built up her diagnosis within The Upside of Being Down. Much like navigating unknown seas, Carolina writes about surviving an illness that is entirely abstract and has no simple way out, while also advocating for eating disorder awareness to encourage families and people who are on the verge of giving up.

The Nature of Human Persons: Metaphysics and Bioethics
The questions of whether there is a shared nature common to all human beings and, if so, what essential qualities define this nature are among the most widely discussed topics in the history of philosophy and remain the subject of perennial interest and controversy. This book offers a metaphysical investigation of the composition of the human essence-that is, with what is a human being identical or what types of parts are necessary for a human being to exist: an immaterial mind, a physical body, a functioning brain, a soul? It also considers the criterion of identity for a human being across time and change-that is, what is required for a human being to continue existing as a person despite undergoing physical and psychological changes over time? Jason Eberl's investigation presents and defends a theoretical perspective from the thirteenth-century philosopher and theologian Thomas Aquinas. Advancing beyond descriptive historical analysis, this book places Aquinas's account of human nature into direct comparison with several prominent contemporary theories: substance dualism, emergentism, animalism, constitutionalism, four-dimensionalism, and embodied mind theory. There are practical implications of exploring these theories as they inform various conclusions regarding when human beings first come into existence-at conception, during gestation, or after birth-and how we ought to define death for human beings. Finally, each of these viewpoints offers a distinctive rationale as to whether, and if so how, human beings may survive death. This book's central argument is that the Thomistic account of human nature includes several desirable features that other theories lack and offers a cohesive portrait of one's continued existence from conception through life to death and beyond.

Carville's Cure: Leprosy, Stigma, and the Fight for Justice
Between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, the Mississippi River curls around an old plantation thick with trees, with a stately white manor house at its heart. Locals knew it as Carville-the site of the only leprosarium in the continental United States from 1894 until 1999, where generations of afflicted Americans were isolated, often until death. While experts today know that leprosy is not nearly as contagious as once feared, there remains a virulent stigma around those who suffer from it. Pam Fessler tells the story of Carville's patients against the backdrop of America's slowly shifting attitudes toward those cast aside as others. She also reveals how patients rallied together with an unlikely team of nuns, researchers, and doctors to find a cure for the disease, and to fight the insidious stigma that surrounded it. With original interviews and newly discovered archival material, Fessler presents an essential history of one of America's most shameful secrets.

Jin Shin Healing Touch: Quick Help for Common Ailments
A full-color, step-by-step guide to the simple two-point touch method of Jin Shin Jyutsu for quick relief from many common conditions and injuries * Details the 52 energy points of Jin Shin Jyutsu, called Safety Energy Locks (SELs), where energy is most likely to become blocked along the body's energy pathways and where it is also most easily released * Explains the sequence of points to hold and the appropriate finger mudras (positions) to address specific ailments, conditions, and injuries as well as stimulate the body's self-healing response and harmonize energy flow * Includes concise yet detailed instructions and clear illustrations of the energy points and sequences A gentle self-help method for harmonizing energy flow, strengthening the immune system, and stimulating the body's self-healing response, Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese healing art akin to an easier form of acupressure. The system centers on the 52 Safety Energy Locks (SELs) of the body's energy pathways, points where energy tends to become stuck easily and thus can also be released easily, usually by holding just two energy points simultaneously. In this full-color guide to Jin Shin Jyutsu, complete with detailed step-by-step illustrations, experienced practitioner Tina Stumpfig explains how to hold the SEL points in easy sequences to address specific ailments, conditions, and injuries. She also details a variety of finger mudras (finger holds) that can serve as shortcuts for bringing awareness to and alleviating a number of issues, such as anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, and back pains. The author describes the major overarching energy flows of the body and shows how, when a pathway becomes blocked, the energy ceases to flow freely and stagnates. Initially the channel is only blocked locally, though in the long run a blockage creates imbalance along the entire energy pathway and can thus affect the whole body. Using Jin Shin Jyutsu to work with the SELs allows you to quickly and easily release these energetic blockages, both acute or chronic. The polarity of the energy flow in our hands--energy flowing out on the right, flowing in on the left--functions like a starter cable that reestablishes broken energy links. At the same time, conscious breathing allows us to deepen our cosmic awareness and understanding of issues connected to the SELs on the inner level. Whether you are facing allergies, exhaustion, pain, or inflammation, the healing touch of Jin Shin Jyutsu offers a simple self-help tool that can quickly alleviate and soothe symptoms, kickstart the healing process, and improve overall health.

Herbal Formularies for Health Professionals is a five-volume set that serves as a comprehensive, practical reference manual for herbalists, physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals. Dr. Jill Stansbury draws on her decades of clinical experience and her extensive research to provide an unparalleled range of herbal formulas. Organized by body system, each volume includes hundreds of formulas to treat common health conditions, as well as formulas that address specific energetic or symptomatic presentations. For each formula, Dr. Stansbury briefly explains how the selected herbs address the specific condition. Sidebars and user-friendly lists help readers quickly choose which herbs are best for specific presentations and detail traditional uses of both Western and traditional Asian formulas and herbs that are readily available in the United States. Volume 4 focuses on herbal formulas that are complementary therapies to treatment of peripheral nerve issues, including neuropathy and nerve trauma, and central nervous system issues such as seizures, Parkinson's disease, and dementia. A chapter on psychiatric disorders focuses on herbal therapies for common conditions such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, dissociative disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as the use of herbal formulas in treatment of those dealing with drug addiction. A chapter on pain management provides herbal formulas for both acute and chronic pain conditions, including headaches, sinus pain, muscle pain, neuralgia, gastrointestinal pain, and pain from injuries. Each chapter includes a materia medica section that describes individual herbs with tips on their properties, modes of action, and the specific symptoms each plant best addresses. These formularies are also a tutorial for budding herbalists on the sophisticated art of fine-tuning an herbal formula for the constitution and overall health condition of an individual patient, rather than prescribing a one-size-fits-all treatment for a basic diagnosis. The text aims to teach by example, helping clinicians develop their own intuition and ability to create effective herbal formulas. Volume 1 focuses on digestion and elimination; Volume 2 covers circulation and respiration; and Volume 3 focuses on endocrinology and the reproductive systems. Volume 5, which will cover immunology, orthopedics, and otolaryngology, will be published in spring 2021.

Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment Is Killing America's Heartland
A physician reveals how right-wing backlash policies have mortal consequences -- even for the white voters they promise to help Named one of the most anticipated books of 2019 by Esquire and the Boston Globe In the era of Donald Trump, many lower- and middle-class white Americans are drawn to politicians who pledge to make their lives great again. But as Dying of Whiteness shows, the policies that result actually place white Americans at ever-greater risk of sickness and death. Physician Jonathan M. Metzl's quest to understand the health implications of backlash governance leads him across America's heartland. Interviewing a range of everyday Americans, he examines how racial resentment has fueled progun laws in Missouri, resistance to the Affordable Care Act in Tennessee, and cuts to schools and social services in Kansas. And he shows these policies' costs: increasing deaths by gun suicide, falling life expectancies, and rising dropout rates. White Americans, Metzl argues, must reject the racial hierarchies that promise to aid them but in fact lead our nation to demise.

The Morehouse Model: How One School of Medicine Revolutionized Community Engagement and Health Equity
Among the 154 medical schools in the United States, Morehouse School of Medicine stands out for its formidable success in improving its surrounding communities. Over its history, Morehouse has become known as an institution committed to community engagement with an interest in closing the health equity gap between people of color and the white majority population. In The Morehouse Model, Ronald L. Braithwaite and his coauthors reveal the lessons learned over the decades since the school's founding-lessons that other medical schools and health systems will be eager to learn in the hope of replicating Morehouse's success. Describing the philosophical, cultural, and contextual grounding of the Morehouse Model, they give concrete examples of it in action before explaining how to foster the collaboration between community-based organizations and university faculty that is essential to making this model of care and research work. Arguing that establishing ongoing collaborative projects requires genuineness, transparency, and trust from everyone involved, the authors offer a theory of citizen participation as a critical element for facilitating behavioral change. Drawing on case studies, exploratory research, surveys, interventions, and secondary analysis, they extrapolate lessons to advance the field of community-based participatory research alongside community health. Written by well-respected leaders in the effort to reduce health inequities, The Morehouse Model is rooted in social action and social justice constructs. It will be a touchstone for anyone conducting community-based participatory research, as well as any institution that wants to have a positive effect on its local community.

Stories and the Brain: The Neuroscience of Narrative
How do our brains enable us to tell and follow stories? And how do stories affect our minds? In Stories and the Brain, Paul Armstrong analyzes the cognitive processes involved in constructing and exchanging stories, exploring their role in the neurobiology of mental functioning. Armstrong argues that the ways in which stories order events in time, imitate actions, and relate our experiences to others' lives are correlated to cortical processes of temporal binding, the circuit between action and perception, and the mirroring operations underlying embodied intersubjectivity. He reveals how recent neuroscientific findings about how the brain works-how it assembles neuronal syntheses without a central controller-illuminate cognitive processes involving time, action, and self-other relations that are central to narrative. An extension of his previous book, How Literature Plays with the Brain, this new study applies Armstrong's analysis of the cognitive value of aesthetic harmony and dissonance to narrative. Armstrong explains how narratives help the brain negotiate the neverending conflict between its need for pattern, synthesis, and constancy and its need for flexibility, adaptability, and openness to change. The neuroscience of these interactions is part of the reason stories give shape to our lives even as our lives give rise to stories. Taking up the age-old question of what our ability to tell stories reveals about language and the mind, this truly interdisciplinary project should be of interest to humanists and cognitive scientists alike.

Pennhurst and the Struggle for Disability Rights
Conceived in the era of eugenics as a solution to what was termed the problem of the feeble-minded, state-operated institutions subjected people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to a life of compulsory incarceration. One of nearly 300 such facilities in the United States, Pennhurst State School and Hospital was initially hailed as a model institution but was later revealed to be a nightmare, where medical experimentation and physical and psychological abuse were rampant. At its peak, more than 3,500 residents were confined at Pennhurst, supervised by a staff of fewer than 600. Using a blended narrative of essays and first-person accounts, this history of Pennhurst examines the institution from its founding during an age of Progressive reform to its present-day exploitation as a controversial Halloween attraction. In doing so, it traces a decades-long battle to reform the abhorrent school and hospital and reveals its role as a catalyst for the disability rights movement. Beginning in the 1950s, parent-advocates, social workers, and attorneys joined forces to challenge the dehumanizing conditions at Pennhurst. Their groundbreaking advocacy, accelerated in 1968 by the explosive televised expose Suffer the Little Children, laid the foundation for lawsuits that transformed American jurisprudence and ended mass institutionalization in the United States. As a result, Pennhurst became a symbolic force in the disability civil rights movement in America and around the world. Extensively researched and featuring the stories of survivors, parents, and advocates, this compelling history will appeal both to those with connections to Pennhurst and to anyone interested in the history of institutionalization and the disability rights movement.

Hermetic Herbalism: The Art of Extracting Spagyric Essences
A never-before-translated occult classic that brings the science of herbal medicine back to its Hermetic roots * Includes a large collection of recipes for spagyric medicines and quintessences, with detailed step-by-step instructions, adapted from celebrated spagyrists such as Paracelsus, Pseudo-Lull, Philipp Ulstad, and Nicaise Le Fevre * Provides botanical and medicinal classifications of over 600 plant species along with their astral natures, elemental qualities, and planetary and zodiacal signatures * Explores advanced methods and techniques and shares the author's secret formula for a universal circulatum First published in French in 1911, this practical guide to the art of spagyrics begins by outlining the ancient yet often forgotten Hermetic foundations of herbalism. Author Jean Maveric provides botanical and medicinal classifications of over 600 plant species along with an in-depth study of their astral natures, elemental qualities, and planetary and zodiacal signatures as well as practical advice on the appropriate times to harvest plants and administer herbal remedies and quintessences. Reviewing the general principles and procedures of premodern chemistry, Maveric then explores the secret doctrines and operations of the spagyric art. He offers a large collection of recipes for spagyric herbal preparations adapted from celebrated spagyrists such as Paracelsus, Pseudo-Lull, Philipp Ulstad, Jan Baptist van Helmont, Oswald Croll, and Nicaise Le Fevre, providing detailed step-by-step instructions for a veritable pharmacopeia of spagyric extracts, tinctures, elixirs, liquors, oils, unguents, salts, aquae vitae, and quintessences. Maveric also shares his intricate theory of astral medicine and advocates a seasonal Hermetic diet designed to keep the humors of the body in equilibrium and prevent the onset of illness. In the final section of the book, Maveric focuses on the more advanced methods and techniques of Paracelsus, Helmont, and George Starkey, unraveling the mysteries of manufacturing alkalis, alkahests, and menstrua and divulging his own secret formula for a universal circulatum. Available now for the first time in English, this occult classic unveils the art of extracting spagyric essences to a modern audience while also bringing the science of herbal medicine back to its Hermetic roots.

fMRI
An accessible introduction to the history, fundamental concepts, challenges, and controversies of the fMRI by one of the pioneers in the field. The discovery of functional MRI (fMRI) methodology in 1991 was a breakthrough in neuroscience research. This non-invasive, relatively high-speed, and high sensitivity method of mapping human brain activity enabled observation of subtle localized changes in blood flow associated with brain activity. Thousands of scientists around the world have not only embraced fMRI as a new and powerful method that complemented their ongoing studies but have also gone on to redirect their research around this revolutionary technique. This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series offers an accessible introduction to the history, fundamental concepts, challenges, and controversies of fMRI, written by one of the pioneers in the field. Peter Bandettini covers the essentials of fMRI, providing insight and perspective from his nearly three decades of research. He describes other brain imaging and assessment methods; the sources of fMRI contrasts; the basic methodology, from hardware to pulse sequences; brain activation experiment design strategies; and data and image processing. A unique, standalone chapter addresses major controversies in the field, outlining twenty-six challenges that have helped shape fMRI research. Finally, Bandettini lays out the four essential pillars of fMRI: technology, methodology, interpretation, and applications. The book can serve as a guide for the curious nonexpert and a reference for both veteran and novice fMRI scientists.

Tender: The Imperfect Art of Caring
A personal, positive and essential book for the many invisible carers among us. We are all likely - at some point in our lives - to face the prospect of caring for another, whether it's a parent, child or partner. It is estimated that there are 7 million people in the UK caring for loved ones. And yet these are the unpaid, unsung people whose number is rising all the time. In Tender: the imperfect art of caring, Penny Wincer combines her own experiences as a carer with the experiences of others to offer real and transformative tools and insights for navigating a situation that many of us are either facing or will face at some time. Penny Wincer has twice been a carer: first to her mother, and now as a single parent to her autistic son. Tender shows how looking after oneself is a fundamental part of caring for another, and describes the qualities that we can look to cultivate in ourselves through what may otherwise feel to be an exhausting task. Weaving her lived experience with research into resilience, perfectionism and self-compassion, Penny combines the stories of other carers alongside those who receive support - offering an often surprising and hopeful perspective.

Human Errors: A Panorama of Our Glitches, From Pointless Bones to Broken Genes
We like to think of ourselves as highly evolved. But if we are evolution's greatest creation, why are we so badly designed? We have retinas that face backward, we must find vitamins and nutrients in our diets that other animals simply make for themselves and millions of us can't reproduce successfully without help from modern science. And that's just the beginning of the story. Biologist Nathan H. Lents takes us on an entertaining and illuminating tour of our four-billion-year-long evolutionary saga, and shows us how each of our flaws tells us a story about our species' history.

Stories and the Brain: The Neuroscience of Narrative
How do our brains enable us to tell and follow stories? And how do stories affect our minds? In Stories and the Brain, Paul Armstrong analyzes the cognitive processes involved in constructing and exchanging stories, exploring their role in the neurobiology of mental functioning. Armstrong argues that the ways in which stories order events in time, imitate actions, and relate our experiences to others' lives are correlated to cortical processes of temporal binding, the circuit between action and perception, and the mirroring operations underlying embodied intersubjectivity. He reveals how recent neuroscientific findings about how the brain works-how it assembles neuronal syntheses without a central controller-illuminate cognitive processes involving time, action, and self-other relations that are central to narrative. An extension of his previous book, How Literature Plays with the Brain, this new study applies Armstrong's analysis of the cognitive value of aesthetic harmony and dissonance to narrative. Armstrong explains how narratives help the brain negotiate the neverending conflict between its need for pattern, synthesis, and constancy and its need for flexibility, adaptability, and openness to change. The neuroscience of these interactions is part of the reason stories give shape to our lives even as our lives give rise to stories. Taking up the age-old question of what our ability to tell stories reveals about language and the mind, this truly interdisciplinary project should be of interest to humanists and cognitive scientists alike.

Loving Large: A Mother's Rare Disease Memoir
If not me, then who will save my child? A mother must confront the unthinkable when her son is diagnosed with a rare medical condition. Patti M. Hall's life is pitched into an abyss of uncertainty when a golf-ball sized tumour is discovered in her teenage son's head and he is diagnosed with gigantism, a disease of both legend and stigma. After scrambling to access a handful of medical experts in the field, Patti learns that her son could grow uncontrollably, his mobility could be permanently limited, and his life could be cut short without timely and aggressive treatment. Patti's attention shifts fully away from her relationships and friendships as well as her own career and health. Her new normal sees her step into a dozen new roles, including nurse, researcher, caregiver, and advocate, while she struggles and fails to rebuild her life as a newly divorced woman. In Loving Large, Patti's voice exudes wit, wisdom, and humour as she discovers that resilience is learned and that the changes experienced in the aftermath of crisis can often create the greatest opportunities.

This handbook, the first of its kind, provides a comprehensive and carefully curated multidisciplinary and genre-spanning view of the state of the field of Critical Menstruation Studies, opening up new directions in research and advocacy. It is animated by the central question: ' what new lines of inquiry are possible when we center our attention on menstrual health and politics across the life course? The chapters-diverse in content, form and perspective-establish Critical Menstruation Studies as a potent lens that reveals, complicates and unpacks inequalities across biological, social, cultural and historical dimensions. This handbook is an unmatched resource for researchers, policy makers, practitioners, and activists new to and already familiar with the field as it rapidly develops and expands.

How Do You Feel?: An Interoceptive Moment with Your Neurobiological Self
A book that fundamentally changes how neuroscientists and psychologists categorize sensations and understand the origins and significance of human feelings How Do You Feel? brings together startling evidence from neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry to present revolutionary new insights into how our brains enable us to experience the range of sensations and mental states known as feelings. Drawing on his own cutting-edge research, neurobiologist Bud Craig has identified an area deep inside the mammalian brain-the insular cortex-as the place where interoception, or the processing of bodily stimuli, generates feelings. He shows how this crucial pathway for interoceptive awareness gives rise in humans to the feeling of being alive, vivid perceptual feelings, and a subjective image of the sentient self across time. Craig explains how feelings represent activity patterns in our brains that signify emotions, intentions, and thoughts, and how integration of these patterns is driven by the unique energy needs of the hominid brain. He describes the essential role of feelings and the insular cortex in such diverse realms as music, fluid intelligence, and bivalent emotions, and relates these ideas to the philosophy of William James and even to feelings in dogs. How Do You Feel? is also a compelling insider's account of scientific discovery, one that takes readers behind the scenes as the astonishing answer to this neurological puzzle is pursued and pieced together from seemingly unrelated fields of scientific inquiry. This book will fundamentally alter the way that neuroscientists and psychologists categorize sensations and understand the origins and significance of human feelings.

Pathways to a Successful Accountable Care Organization
Health care in America is undergoing great change. Soon, accountable care organizations-health care organizations that tie provider reimbursements to quality metrics and reductions in the cost of care-will be ubiquitous. But how do you set up an ACO? How does an ACO function? And what are the keys to creating a profitable ACO? Pathways to a Successful Accountable Care Organization will help guide you through the complicated process of establishing and running an ACO. Peter A. Gross, MD, who has firsthand experience as the chairman of a successful ACO, breaks down how he did it and describes the pitfalls he discovered along the way. In-depth essays by a group of expert authors touch on * the essential ingredients of a successful ACO * monitoring and submitting GPRO quality measures* mastering your patients' responses to the Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Survey* how bundled payments and CPC+ can meld with your ACO* how MACRA and MIPS affect your ACO* the role of an ACO/CIN* the complexities of post-acute care* data analytics* engaging and integrating physician practices* and much more Dr. Gross and his colleagues are in a perfect position to guide other health care leaders through the ACO process while also providing excellent case studies for policy professionals who are interested in how their work influences health care delivery.

Rabies in the Streets: Interspecies Camaraderie in Urban India
Found in two thirds of the world, rabies is a devastating infectious disease with no effective cure once symptoms appear and a 99.9 percent case-fatality rate. Rabies in the Streets tells the compelling story of the relationship between people, street animals, and rabies in urban India, where one third of human rabies deaths occur. In this book, Deborah Nadal makes the case that only a One Health approach of interspecies camaraderie can save people and animals from the horrors of rabies and almost certain death. Using the methods of multispecies ethnography, this book leads the reader through the streets and slums of Delhi and Jaipur, where people and animals, such a dogs, cats, and macaques, interact intimately and sometimes violently. Nadal explores the intricate web of factors that brings people into contact with animals in these spaces, creating favorable conditions for the rabies virus to infect across species. She shows how and why the sociocultural conditions that contribute to the spread of rabies-including poverty, a limited awareness of rabies and bite treatment, trust in traditional medicines, inadequate health and sanitation facilities, political ambivalence, and religious customs-are so numerous that they overwhelm the biological factors. Despite technical medical progress, infectious diseases are now emerging and reemerging in ways we did not expect. This original story of rabies challenges conventional approaches of separation and extermination, proving that a One Health approach is our best chance at fostering mutual survival in a world increasingly overpopulated by humans, animals, and deadly pathogens.
