Center for History: Handling Disease in History
April 12 @ 9:00 am
Enjoy an educational and virtual experience with T.J. Honeycutt, an archivist at the Wabash County Museum. He will present Handling Disease in Wabash County. The program highlights infectious diseases and how local health professionals and community leaders have dealt with them historically. Much of the information was found in periodicals and from advertisements circa 1920. Honeycutt will have special emphasis on the 1917-18 h1n1 influenza, also referred to as the Spanish
flu. He will share similarities and contrasts between the various contagious diseases. Access to this information will be released April 12th to watch on your own time on Center for History’s website: www.northmanchestercenterforhistory.org
The Society sponsors a monthly educational series that is available at no cost to the public.
