Anne Vardo-Zalik - Associate Professor of Biology, Penn State York

Book Title: New Guinea Tapeworms and Jewish Grandmothers: Tales of Parasites and People

Author: Robert Desowitz

Book Description:

I chose this book because it has shaped me both as a scientist and a teacher. In this book, Dr. Desowitz illustrates how complex topics in parasitology and biology can be relayed in simpler terms, allowing me to rethink how to cover such topics in my courses. With a focus on real-life case-studies, and a little humor, this book is a model for how I approach undergraduate classes in infectious disease.
