The Department of Epidemiology at the School of Public Health invites you to help celebrate the school’s 75th anniversary by connecting the past, present, and future of epidemiology on Friday, Nov. 18.

This one-day event will feature a keynote lecture by David Oshinsky, Ph.D. and the Francis Memorial Lecture by Anne Schuchat, M.D. Oshinsky will focus on polio in a lecture entitled “Polio: A look back at America’s most successful public health crusade.” Schuchat, meanwhile, will deliver her lecture, “From holy grail to hesitation — and back? The journey of vaccines in America.”

There will also be panel discussions in the morning and afternoon followed by a poster session. Lunch will be included in the day’s activities along with a reception following the Francis Memorial Lecture.

The event is open to all members of the UMHS community, though departmental alumni (student, staff and faculty), current members of the department and School of Public Health, collaborators and other friends and supporters of the department are especially encouraged to attend.
