Registration is now OPEN for Symposium 2018: The History & Future of Public Health in Lawrence, Massachusetts and Beyond

The Lawrence History Center will host a one-day symposium, "The History & Future of Public Health in Lawrence, Massachusetts and Beyond," on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at the Everett Mill, 15 Union Street, Lawrence.

This symposium is designed for exploration and dialogue, thinking broadly about public health issues through the perspectives of the humanities. The day-long effort will look back at one of the most significant health crises in the history of the United States - the 1918 Influenza Pandemic - and open the door to considering contemporary health crises in the country and most particularly in greater Lawrence.

Please REGISTER early for a full day of speakers, panel presentations, and other meaningful information!
