  About this Event:  


The late 19th and early 20th centuries were decades of pivotal change on so many fronts; the American Civil War, the death of Prince Albert, World War One, and the Spanish Flu Pandemic all had massive influence.


Join us for a virtual Zoom lecture discussing the historical and cultural events that changed the way we handle the dead and social attitudes around our deceased bodies in the United States.  



Please note: While we are not charging admission for this virtual event, we do ask that you consider making a donation to The College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Gifts of any amount help preserve our 230+ years of medical history. We greatly appreciate anything you are able to give!


The College of Physicians of Philadelphia reserves the right to record the virtual experience for marketing or promotional use.
