Tomorrow I'm flying to Iowa City for a couple talks. It's my first time to the city and the state, so I'm looking forward to it. I hope some Iowa-based Loominaries can catch me at the following events: Friday, July 13, 9 am, Medical Alumni Auditorium, University of Iowa: "Infecting Minds: Science Communication With New Media." Sponsored by the Divisions of General Internal Medicine & Infectious Disease in the Carver College of Medicine and Department of Epidemiology in the College of Public Health. Details here. Saturday, July 14, 1 pm, Macbride Hall, University of Iowa: "A Planet of Viruses." I'll be speaking as part of the Iowa City Book Festival. Details here.
