Event Description:

Rooted in drama of Indiana’s homegrown revolutionary, Eugene V. Debs, this interactive panel discussion will explore how class affected health outcomes 100 years ago and how it continues to affect outcomes today.

By talking about the life of a rabble rouser like Eugene V. Debs and coupling that information with current public health issues, we hope to spark a conversation that will put history into action. How did class affect a person’s health in 1919? Are there parallels to 2019? With 100 years in perspective, what worked? What failed? Is the health care system continuing to evolve or does it need a wholescale revolution? Join us for this informative and thought-provoking panel discussion and audience dialogue. 

Parking is free and available in the lot by the museum and on the museum’s campus.

RSVPs required due to limited seating. Walk-in guest can only be accommodated after all registered guests have been seated. 

Presented by Side Effects Public Media & WFYI Productions and the Indiana Medical History Museum.
