Careers Hunting Deadly Diseases

Series: Wild Science Careers

By Edward Willett

Author Edward Willett tells the true stories of six real disease hunters.

Learn how these "disease detectives" are coming up with new ways to fight disease, and find out if you have what it takes to become an epidemiologist, too!
