President of the Sabin Vaccine Institute, Hotez (microbiology, immunology, and tropical medicine; George Washington U.) continues his effort to raise public awareness about parasitical infections that do not make the headlines, and to advocate for the mostly very poor people living in the remote and rural regions where they are endemic. Among the diseases are hookworm, elephantiasis, tracoma, sleeping sickness, dengue. He also looks at North America pet diseases, the global network for disease control, and vaccine trends.
