Dewees Resident Jeff Deal is a man of many talents: he was a surgeon until he lost the sight in one eye, when he switched his specialization to tropical disease. A few years ago, Jeff gave a presentation at the Environmental Program board of the island demonstrating his invention for capturing mosquitoes. He was the first to introduce bee-keeping to the island. His books have been featured at book club. Now, a robot that he invented with his brother is capable of sanitizing an entire room, and Jeff is headed to Liberia to help fight the Ebola epidemic. This terrific article in yesterday’s Post and Courier explains his robot and his mission to help.
