PBS did a good series on global health challenges called "Rx for Survival." This week in the SEGH Film Club we'll be watching portions of the film "Disease Warriors," which looks at the smallpox eradication campaign in the 60s and 70s (pretty much the most famous global public health effort ever) and a similar recent campaign to eradicate polio.
Stop by to watch these videos about the past and present (and future if we have time!) of global eradication programs.
If you can't make it, you can see these and other videos in the "Rx for Survival" series here:
