What you'll learn in this history lesson:

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the deadliest disease outbreak in human history: the global influenza pandemic of 1918. The pandemic is estimated to have infected a quarter of the world’s population and surpassed all of the military deaths in World War I and World War II combined. 

A century later, it’s hardly an illness of the past. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that there are tens of thousands of flu deaths in the United States annually. While we have a better understanding now of viruses, diagnostics, and treatments than in 1918, our globalized society is more interconnected than ever before, spreading our cultures – and our germs – worldwide. 

Join Nicole Bouvier, MD, an infectious disease specialist, and John Barry, author of The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History, to discuss the lasting impact of the 1918 pandemic and its connections to the present day with historian of science Alan Kraut, PhD.
