Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World

January 14 – May 30, 2020

Pende MaskOur world is connected more than ever before by global travel and trade, by technology—and by our microbes.  Explore the connections between human, animal, and environmental health, and discover how people around the world track down and respond to disease outbreaks.  This exhibition is part of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s Outbreak Initiative.  It uses public health information provided by the Smithsonian alongside stories, games, and artifacts curated by WFU students.  While Wake Forest is a global campus for many reasons, this exhibit shows how connected the world is when it comes to disease.
