Women Preventing Disease Throughout History

Ref: C2228661

We will be exploring the contributions that women have made to reduce diseases throughout history, looking at prevention, immunisation and treatments. We will also discuss the way history has been written to see if this reflects the parts played by women of the time. This course should pique your interest and give you a starting point to do more research of your own if you want to find out more.
