4th Annual Life Sciences Forum: Epidemics in Philadelphia through History

The opioid epidemic is finally getting the attention it merits.  With all of the media at our disposal, though, it took several years for the severity and various layers of this story to come to light.

How did the world cope with epidemics of the past?  In 1793, when dreaded Yellow Fever took the lives of so many, how did information about treatment spread? In a time where social media, television,  and organized healthcare did not exist,  epidemiology was just beginning to be understood – although the scientists and physicians of the 1700s may not have used that term. Come listen to a fascinating discussion that takes the life sciences world on a tour of history, linking past and present through: epidemilogy.
