Public Affairs Talks! Voices from the Past: Pandemics
Wednesday, 24 March 2021, 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Our very own Dr. Pippa Koch will present a free Zoom webinar along with Dr. Tom Dicke (History) on past pandemics in America and how they compare with today’s COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the description on the Public Affairs website, pandemics are not new. However, for most of us, COVID-19 is the first pandemic we have experienced first-hand. There have been numerous periods of mass illness and epidemics that have affected America, specifically during the early years of our country’s formation and the more well-known Spanish Flu (1918-1920). Join us as we have a conversation with two of our campus experts, Dr. Tom Dicke and Dr. Philippa Koch, about these past events, what we have learned, and how those experiences were similar or different from what we are experiencing today.
This free event will be a live Zoom webinar with moderated Q&A and is open to the public. Pre-registration is not required, but for MSU professional development purposes, this event is listed on My Learning Connection for registration.
