The Spanish Influenza

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Join us for an informative presentation by UNH Professor Marion Girard-Dorsey. The Spanish Influenza killed 20 million worldwide, at a conservation estimate, and lowered the average life expectancy in the U.S. by 12 years, yet it is a disease that few remember or know well. What was the Spanish influenza, how did it impact the U.S. and the world, how did the U.S., already fighting World War I, respond to it? Because of its impact, this pandemic is too important to forget.
