Local and Global Discussion Group Pandemics: How Do We Remember Them and How Do We Prepare for the Future?

Thursday, April 8, 2021

Pandemics have affected mankind since the dawn of time and have changed the course of history. They don’t stop at national borders and can appear and reappear nearly anywhere at any time. Proper preparation for and prevention of future outbreaks requires strong international organizations along with collective memory and understanding of past pandemics to assure ongoing and effective support of those organizations. We’ll discuss this subject from two perspectives: the role of international organizations, the World Health Organization, in particular, and pandemics of the past as portrayed in literature and history. The meeting is open to anyone who is interested in a civil discussion of the issues with wide participation from a variety of individuals. For further information on this meeting in particular or the group in general, contact Susan Wagner at 508-733-8810 or email her at susanwgnr@gmail.com.
