    Lecture by Dr. Sheila Simons, Department of Health Promotion

    Keynote presentation as part of library's opening of its fall exhibit, "The Flu Then and Now: 1918 to 2018"

    One hundred years ago the “Spanish” influenza pandemic took an estimated 675,000 American lives. Ninety-nine percent of deaths occurred in people under 65; nearly half of those were between the ages of 20-40. It was the most severe pandemic in recent history, with global deaths exceeding 50 million people. With little understanding of the causation and risk factors associated with H1N1, public health was woefully unprepared.

    In total, four influenza pandemics have occurred: 1918, 1957, 1968, and 2009. Each pandemic has provided valuable lessons for public health. Developments since the 1918 pandemic have consisted of vaccines, anti-viral drugs, and the establishment of a global surveillance system by the World Health Organization. Other tools such as social distancing, good hand hygiene and cough etiquette assist in the slowing the spread of influenza.

    In the United States today, more than 200,000 individuals are hospitalized for flu-related complications. And over the past three decades there have been some 3,000-49,000 deaths each year. With the increase in growing populations, urbanization, and mega-cities, the opportunity for the spread of infection increases the likelihood of another influenza pandemic. Despite many uncertainties, the study of past pandemics may help public health develop future planning for timely responses.

    Time and Location: Friday at 4:10 p.m. in Old Main Room 2231

    Speaker: Charles Delman (EIU)

    Title: An Informal Primer on the Alexander Polynomial

    Abstract: The Alexander Polynomial is a classic example of the interface and interplay
    between  geometric  topology,  algebraic  topology,  and  algebra,  the   rst  but
    not least in a long line of increasingly powerful polynomial invariants of knots
    and 3-manifolds.  Recently it has arisen in recent joint work of Petrenko.  At
    Bogdan's request,  I will present an informal introduction to the Alexander
    polynomial  and  its  relation  to  Seifert  surfaces,  cyclic  covering  spaces,  and
    homology.
