“Our History, Our Health Care: Understanding the impact of our region’s history in the present-day health care struggle across our region and across the state of South Carolina.”  Presented by Jim Farmer, USC Aiken Professor Emeritus of History. “What is past is prologue,” wrote Shakespeare. In other words, in order to fully understand, appreciate, and improve our current circumstances, we must look to our history – particularly as it relates to public health in our state and across our region. With a history defined by the legacy of rice and cotton farming with slave labor and the legacy of the textile industry, our region has much to consider. Join to listen as Dr. Farmer explores these histories and shares examples of present day impact. This session will be an interactive opportunity for shared learning – questions are welcome and encouraged. To attend the lecture in person, please call (803) 313-7172 or email to reserve your spot.
