Join us at the National Museum of Natural History for an interactive evening commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 1918 influenza pandemic. Hear about the history of the flu, see our collection of flu-carrying birds, participate in activities illustrating the spread of infectious disease, learn how vaccines are developed, and hear from health experts and scientists on what can be done to address the challenges of the flu and other viral illnesses threatening public health today. This program is one of a series of programs related to the new exhibit Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World, which will open May 18, 2018 at the National Museum of Natural History.
