Author Kwan Kew Lai will discuss her book Lest We Forget: A Doctor’s Experience with Life and Death During the Ebola Outbreak.  After fighting through yards of red tape, leaving her family, and putting her own health at risk to help suffering strangers, Kwan Kew  Lai finally arrived in Africa to volunteer as an infectious disease specialist in 2014,  during the largest Ebola outbreak in history.  What she found was not only blistering heat, inhospitable working conditions, and deadly, unrelenting illness, but hope, resilience, and incredible courage.
