  • EXHIBIT - NOW OPEN!!!: "Countdown to Zero: Defeating Disease"
    January 11, 2017 - October 9, 2017
    Only one human disease, smallpox, has ever been eradicated. But soon a second infection will join the list: Guinea worm disease, a painful and debilitating condition caused by the Guinea worm--known to many as the "fiery serpent". There is no medicine to cure Guinea worm disease and no vaccine to prevent it. Yet it can be stopped. This exhibition shows the heroic efforts throughout history to eradicate, eliminate, and control disease, including the Carter Center-led campaign to wipe out Guinea worm.
