The latest work, which is part true story and part self-help book, reflects on her 35-year career working with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to prevent and eradicate some of the world’s most contagious and deadly diseases including smallpox, malaria, and HIV/AIDS.

The launch of the 2022 edition coincides with the start of the new year, a time when many people across the country set new year’s resolutions and reflect on the achievements they made in the previous year.
At this critical moment, when people reflect on their lives, dreams, habits, and behaviors, Dr. Davis, who is known by her friends as Connie, wants to instill a core message. This message, as is captured in the book’s title, is that risking really is better than regretting.
In, her third book, Connie reflects on both the immensely challenging and profoundly life-affirming experiences that marked her career as a humanitarian and epidemiologist working throughout Africa and Asia in some of the world’s most disadvantaged countries.
By examining the incredible and inspirational stories of her life, Connie seeks to teach her readers how to take their own lives in unexpected, unforgettable, and utterly unique directions.

The memoir contains actionable instructions on how to make difficult decisions with confidence and fearlessness. The book also encourages readers to create what she calls a ‘do-over list’. This list serves as a mechanism by which readers can reflect on the core choices they have made in previous years to develop the skills of calculated risk-taking.
Dr. Cornelia E. Davis is an internationally acclaimed author, speaker, epidemiologist, and doctor. Through the course of her first career in public health, she improved the quality of life of millions of people in the developing world and succeeded in eradicating some of the world’s cruelest diseases.
Now, in her turn as a bestselling author, she has shared her words of wisdom with a global audience in three bestselling books: “Searching for Sitala Mata: Eradicating Smallpox in India” (2017), “Three Years in Ethiopia: How a Civil War and Epidemics Led Me to My Daughter” (2019), and now, “Risking Is Better Than Regretting: Live Without Regrets” (2021).
A spokesperson for the author said, “Connie inspires you to take calculated risks. She reminds you that if you want anything in life to change, you must make the choice to take the chance.”
