Virtual Medical Museum Science Cafe: “Spanish Flu” Pandemic – Influenza in Montgomery County

Join Alan Hawk, the museum’s Historical Collections Manager, for a virtual event to learn how the “Spanish Flu” of 1918 spread through Montgomery County, Maryland, and its effect on its population. Then, explore how nearly a century after the pandemic, Montgomery County continues to play a role in characterizing and understanding the 1918 Influenza virus, as federal, civilian, and military public health agencies monitor incidences of emerging novel influenza strains that may arise worldwide. @MedicalMuseum on Facebook.
