This course provides an opportunity to place the current COVID epidemic within the context of the many epidemics that have occurred in Maryland.
Modern technology has kept us connected during COVID lockdowns. Imagine living in Maryland through yellow fever, typhus, smallpox, and other contagious diseases without our technology and science. For example, in 1764, Talbot County residents experienced “Malignant Fever” that sickened inhabitants. Small pox epidemics killed area children.
Learn how epidemiologists described these epidemics, discuss their impact on local society, and learn how Marylanders of past years responded to them.
What to expect: Learn about the many epidemics that have previously occurred in Maryland and how they were responded to.
