Invisible Enemies: Stories of Infectious Disease


Invisible Enemies: Stories of Infectious Disease

Jeanette Farrell, a third-year medical student, has published a book on seven diseases that changed the course of history.

Invisible Enemies: Stories of Infectious Diseases tells about smallpox, leprosy, plague, tuberculosis, malaria, cholera and AIDS. The book is richly illustrated with historical drawings and photos.

Before entering medical school, Farrell spent six months in India working for a leprosy relief agency, where she dispensed medication and nursed sick patients. As a youth, Farrell worked on the switchboard at a Kentucky tuberculosis sanitarium founded by her father. She dedicated the book to him.

Farrell holds a B.A. in history from Georgetown University and an M.A. in anthropology from Washington University. This is her first book.
