In the 1800s and 1900s, the specter of pandemics always lurked in the shadows of people's lives. Too often, epidemics emerged into the full light of day, devastating communities. From smallpox to cholera to typhoid, measles, influenza, tuberculosis and polio, Cincinnatians and Northern Kentuckians proved influential in researching and finding answers to the spread of persistent and perplexing pandemics. Join us as Dr. Paul Tenkotte, Professor of History at Northern Kentucky University, connects the dots between contagion, research, and public policy in our efforts to control some of the worst scourges of humankind.
