In an effort to create context for the COVID-19 pandemic and the public health response, museum volunteers, students and staff created the Pandemic Timeline. Walk through history and learn about the innovation and resilience of Americans as they navigated public health crises in the past. The parallels to our modern response are quite striking.
This project was funded in part by a grant from NLM/NIH.
