1918 Influenza: One Day at a Time


Tim Stephens and colleagues Jessica Taaffe and John Walsh at Prospero Analytics have been documenting the 1918 Influenza since the beginning of 2018, https://www. prosperoanalyticsllc.com/1918- onedayatatime/  They are creating a record, One Day at a Time, how the outbreak was reported in the American press. The press and Americans were subject to the Sedition and Espionage Acts during the Great War. The record describes fuel and food rationing, social and military regulation of the entertainment and sex industries, an unhealthy male population unready for war, and the hasty creation of new camps all across the country. Tim will present from the documentary record, and draw lessons for current pandemic planning.

Tim has been a proud attended of the One Health Academy for 10 years. He is President of Prospero Analytics and CEO of Ballpark. He has had an accidental public health career spanning 30 years back to his time in North Carolina. For the last 15 years his focus has been on bioterrorism and infectious disease policy, starting at ASTHO and subsequently as an independent entrepreneur. His MA in Journalism is from the University of North Carolina.
