Dr. Soka Moses was only two years out of his medical internship when he was put in charge of the Ebola Treatment Unit at one of the largest hospitals in Liberia. One by one, he watched his colleagues die. Unseen Enemy, a new documentary about the growing threat of global infectious disease, tells the story of ordinary men and women who came face to face with the “unseen enemy”--infectious diseases that threaten our lives and livelihoods no matter who we are or where we live.

Join the National Academy of Medicine on April 2 for an advance screening of this important and moving film.  The screening will also include a panel discussion moderated by Sanjay Gupta (invited), featuring Victor Dzau, president of the NAM; Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Paul Farmer (invited), global health pioneer, Soka Moses, Ebola warrior; Peter Sands, co-chair of the International Commission on a Global Health Risk Framework for the Future, and Janet Tobias, director of Unseen Enemy.
