“The Past Meets the Present: Lessons from the Pandemic of 1918”
Presented by Margaret Marsh, historian, University Professor at Rutgers University, and core member of the Institute for Health
The presentation explores the history of the Flu Pandemic of 1918-19 and considers the significance of America’s experience in that pandemic for our understanding of the current one.

She has served twice as Chancellor of Rutgers University–Camden on an interim basis, most recently from 2020 to 2021.
