Speaker Announcement – Heritage College of Medicine Professor Dr. Mario J. Grijalva

Heritage College of Medicine Professor Dr. Mario J. Grijalva, Director of the Infectious and Tropical Disease Institute at Ohio University, will present at #TEDxOhioUniversity. Based on more than two decades of focused research and field work, Grijalva is an internationally recognized expert on the spread of infectious disease and is perhaps the world’s premier expert on Chagas disease, which affects millions of people in South and Central America and has recently spread to the United States and Europe. He will use his experiences to discuss “What can be achieved by bringing people from different spheres together – scientists and community members working together to advance human well-being.” #tedx #research #medicine
