There is a charge for this event and registration is required; full details will be posted soon.
The effects of the devastating 1918-1919 “Spanish Flu” pandemic were worsened by lack of medical knowledge and by the Great War’s impact on the health of younger, previously healthy individuals in cities, towns and rural communities across Alberta and around the world. What do the archives teach us about health issues and how do we teach young people about the frightening parts of history?
Following the presentation, members and their guests are invited to stay for the EDHS Annual General Meeting.
