In 1918 the Spanish Flu pandemic killed an estimated 50 million people world-wide. One-hundred years later, The Tenement Museum looks back on its impact on the world, city, and the Lower East Side. In considering the flu’s legacy, they’ll also explore how this disease changed approaches to public health and how today’s immigrant communities get access to the health care resources that they need.
