The Francis C. Wood Institute for the History of Medicine presents Prof. David S. Barnes of the University of Pennsylvania Department of History and Sociology of Science. Prof. Barnes will discuss "The 'Patient Zero' Problem in the Epidemiology of Tuberculosis."
David Barnes took his undergraduate degree at Yale and his masters and doctorate in History at the University of California, Berkeley. He came to Philadelphia last September after having taught at UC San Francisco, Emory University, and Harvard University. His book, The Making of a Social Disease: Tuberculosis in Nineteenth-Century France (University of California Press, 1995) has been widely hailed; and he is now completing The Bodily Politics of Germs: Public Health and Civilization in Nineteenth-Century France, which will be published by the Johns Hopkins University Press.
This program starts at 6:15 and refreshments will follow. It is free and open to all. There will be no pre-circulated paper.
