Histories of Health, Disease, and Community Action: A Webinar Series

Tune-in on June 9th at 7pm for our first webinar presentation by Suzanna Wagner:

Compassion and Care: Community Responses during Edmonton's 1918 'Flu Epidemic


COVID-19 has affected our lives in many ways. And, living through a pandemic has magnified many social, economic, and political issues.

This webinar series looks to historical examples of how disease amplified social, political, and economic tensions as well as citizens’ disillusionment with the status quo. Many people advocated for change during and following health crises. We hope that the historical connections between disease and activism will inspire current fights for change today.

After each presentation we will have time for questions and some discussion about how these historical examples of community organizing might apply to our contemporary situation.

Each webinar will be held via Google Meet. Please register to access this virtual event.
