Event Type: Library Event
Date: 9/10/2019
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 7:00 PM
 Jeanna Giese was a normal, healthy teen who loved animals. When she removed a small bat from her church in September 2004, her parents didn't think anything about the small bite she received. Within six weeks she could barely move. Doctors gave her less than four hours to live. After a week in an experimental, medically-induced coma, Jeanna had to relearn how to speak, drink and walk. Join Jeanna as she shares the story of the recovery that put her in a global spotlight as one of only a handful of persons survive rabies. Free. No registration.
