**Dr. Abraar Karan** practices internal medicine at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He is also part of the Howard Hiatt Residency in Global Health Equity. His primary interest is in understanding how we stop emerging infectious disease epidemics. Since February 2020, he has been working on COVID-19 response at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Christopher Muther is the travel writer for the Boston Globe. He caught the travel bug as a child while hatching a plan to escape from his hometown. Over the past three years, his beat at the Globe has brought him to Asia, South America, Central America, Europe, Australia, and Ohio wine country. Previous to writing about travel he held the world's record as the country's least stylish style writer. His column appears Sundays in the travel section of the Boston Globe and online. When he's not on the road, he lives in Boston with his husband and their cat, Mrs. Dusty Davenport.
