Dr. Davis’ announcement comes as the world, still reeling from Covid-19, faces another possible pandemic, with a multi-country outbreak of monkeypox being witnessed in non-endemic countries, including America.
The disease, which is closely related to the virus that causes smallpox, and which has now arrived on US shores serves as a reminder that public health is one of the most critical dimensions of individual and communal life, and that those people who valiantly fight against infectious diseases are worthy of great respect.
Dr. Davis, who is known to her friends as Connie, made it her life’s work to try to eradicate smallpox, one of the most harmful diseases in human history, as her first book ‘Searching for Sitala Mata’ describes. This powerful read won gold in the Global Ebook Awards in the categories of Non-fiction and Inspirational.
Her follow-up novel, ‘Three Years in Ethiopia’ garnered similar acclaim as an IndieReader Approved title with a 4.7 out of 5-star rating. Working in Ethiopia and battling against meningitis, the memoir depicts how swiftly one’s life can be altered forever. The book charts the moment when civil war broke out in the country and Connie was forced to flee the country with her newly adopted daughter, a victim of the conflict.
Culminating these two incredible journeys in public health, Dr. Davis’ most recent memoir, ‘Risking Is Better Than Regretting’, showcases that an extraordinary and meaningful life is within anyone’s grasp, they simply must make the choice, to take a chance to change their life.
