Event description

Description

Influenza and Emergency Medicine

An estimated 16 million people died in World War I. Then, as the war was ending, came the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918. It killed an estimated 50 million. The flu affected over 25 percent of the U.S. population. Young adults were among the hardest hit groups. Scientists, doctors, and health officials worked desperately to identify and stop the scourge, a story that continues in the emergency departments of today.

Jeremy Brown is the first permanent director of the Office of Emergency Care Research at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Brown is currently an associate professor of emergency medicine and chief of the clinical research section in the Department of Emergency Medicine at The George Washington University. He is also an attending physician at the Washington DC VA Medical Center.
