Program: This is a Smart Towns presentation by Dr. Adam Hull, Ascension Crittenton Physician - Primary Care Internal Medicine
The Flu Epidemic of 1918 killed more than 50 million people, one-fifth of the world's population, and affected over 25% of the population of the United States. The year of 1918 was an unforgettable year of suffering and death, and peace as World War I ended.
A quote from the Journal of the American Medical Association in December 1918 stated: "...Medical Science for four and one half years devoted itself to putting men on the firing line and keeping them there. Now it must turn with its whole might to combating the greatest enemy of all - infectious disease."
Join Dr. Hull as he looks back over this tragic time that lead to great discoveries and change.
