Dr. Zelicoff has traveled extensively in countries of the former Soviet Union and has led joint research projects in epidemiology of infectious disease, while establishing Internet access at Russian and Kazak biological laboratories. The result of this activity is a real-time clinician-based disease surveillance and reporting system called the Syndrome Reporting Information System (SYRIS) which is now being used by public health officials responsible for monitoring the health of more than 1.25 million people in Texas and countless agricultural animals and wildlife as well. Dr. Zelicoff’s is the author of: “Microbe: Are we ready for the next Plague?” published by AMACOM Books. And his latest book is “More Harm than Good”, a practical look at the reasons for costly medical practice in the United States. He is the author of numerous medical and public health text book chapters, and is a frequent contributor to Op-Ed pages in the Washington Post, Albuquerque Journal and other newspapers.
