Influenza 1918: The North Carolina Experience

The Medical History Interest Group invites you to attend “Influenza 1918: The North Carolina Experience” presented by Dan Shingleton, MSW, NC Division of Public Health (retired), ECU (retired).

It is estimated that one million North Carolinians suffered from influenza during 1918-1919. Over 13,000 citizens of the state died during a six-month period. This lecture will focus on the social, medical, and public health consequences of the pandemic. In addition, literature related to the period will be discussed.

E. Daniel Shingleton worked for the North Carolina Division of Public Health for more than 20 years. He taught social work at ECU and Atlantic Christian College and, after its name change, Barton College. Dan was the 1991 President of the North Carolina Public Association. Although officially retired, he continues to pursue his love of the history of North Carolina public health.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

The lecture will also feature a pop-up display.
