A Tour Through Disease

Brandy Schillace, PhD, Public Engagement Fellow from the Dittrick Medical History Center, will address some of the infamous diseases of the past. From polio to smallpox, cholera to diphtheria, we will learn about epidemics and pandemics that have “plagued” our city and region. Following the discussion at Daffodil Hall, guests will board Lolly the Trolley and tour through the Cemetery to further explore the types of illnesses and calamities that befell Clevelanders throughout history.

This event is co-sponsored by the Lake View Cemetery Foundation, the Dittrick Medical History Center, and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities.
