Blue Marble Health

Peter Hotez, fellow in disease and poverty and a U.S. Science Envoy, will be at the Brazos Bookstore signing copies of his book, "Blue Marble Health," on October 18 at 7 p.m. 

In this book, Hotez describes a new global paradigm — poor people living in wealthy countries account for most of the world’s poverty-related illness — and issues an urgent call to decision-makers to meaningfully address these neglected diseases. 

Hotez is dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, where he is also the Texas Children’s Hospital Endowed Chair in Tropical Pediatrics and the president of the Sabin Vaccine Institute.
