"The Great Death in Paradise: the 1918 Influenza pandemic in Fiji, Tonga, and the Samoas".

A public talk by Dr Ryan McLane outlining the spread of influenza in the Pacific.

Dr McLane first became interested in the 1918 influenza epidemic when he was a public health nurse in Alaska. His role led to his involvement in research into local communities which were decimated by the disease.

He has since pursued this interest by completing a PhD at Otago, and he is assisting with pandemic planning for the Ministry of Health in Wellington. Dr McLane’s expertise and passion for the subject means his talk will be fascinating, and he will explain to us some of the wider ramifications of the spread of the disease.

Entry: Free, cuppa and biscuits included.
