About The Event
Date: Tuesday, Mar 23rd
Program Time: 6:00PM
Did you know that we’re in our 5th pandemic in 100 years? In 1918, before we even knew what a virus was, the Spanish Flu was dubbed as another ‘la grippe.’ It came in three waves and proceeded to kill more people than the casualties of WWI; it finally ended in 1920. Subsequent pandemics occurred in 1956/57, 1968/69, and 2009/10, How did we handle each as a society? Join Christina Richter as she drills down into the history of pandemics in the last century and brings to light some of the parallels and problems that we can relate to in today’s pandemic of 2020/21.
