Grand Rounds SPHERE presents - Beyond the Broad Street Pump: Insights into the History of Public Health

Wednesday 1/16 5:30PM - 6:30PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

In 1854, John Snow famously removed the handle from a water pump in London, stopping a cholera outbreak dead in its tracks. But did you know that public health innovations can be traced back to ancient times, even back to the days of Hippocrates? Historical case studies in public health can teach us valuable lessons about where we've been, offer important perspective on the difficulties of change, and help us address the public health problems we face today. 

Join the Student Public Health Epidemic Respose Effort (SPHERE) for a look at key milestones in public health history presented by Jamie Sokol (BCHS '07), public health administrator, workforce development and training, Allegheny County Health Department.
