THE SPANISH FLU: STORY AND SCIENCE AT THE INFIRMARY
Wednesday, September 26, 2018
7:30-9:00 PM in the Jenny Lind Chapel.
A talk from University of Worcester's Professor Maggie Andrews and Dr Mike Wheeler to investigate Spanish Flu. What was it? What does it look like? Why did it spread? What was its impact after the First World War?
The Infirmary will be open 5-7pm for visitors that wish to explore the exhibition before the event.

When life gives you Lunacy... "Boil Juice of Ground-ivy with sweet Oil and white Wine into an Ointment. Shave the Head, anoint it therewith, and chafe it in warm, every other Day for three Weeks. Bruise also the Leaves and bind them on the Head, and give three Spoonfuls of the Juice warm every Morning--This generally cures Melancholy." Primitive Physick, John Wesley, 1747
