Public Health Film and Archive Exhibit

Friday, September 29, 2017 | 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. Add to Calendar

The TMC Library is hosting a lunch-time film screenings of public health films from around the 1940s. These short films show how not to spread germs in public by demonstrating wrong and right behavior. Think of salad-bar sneeze-guards as an innovation and you get the idea.

The films are being shown in conjunction with an exhibit of rare books and artifacts about public health from the McGovern Historical Center’s archives and special collections. Some of the topics covered are yellow fever, cholera, sanitation, and germ theory.

Box lunches will be served on a first-come first-serve basis. Be sure to wash your hands before lunch and don’t eat gum off the bottom of your desk.

The event will be on the main floor of the TMC Library.
