Open and free to all, the exhibition presents the research of Sanjoy Bhattacharya, Director of the Centre for Global Health Histories and Professor in the History of Medicine, Department of History. The exhibition showcases previously unknown and unwritten histories of smallpox eradication and highlights the lessons these provide to contemporary and future public health policy.
Many have already enjoyed the exhibition, with visitors particularly commending the eclectic gallery of powerful images and the collection of fascinating artefacts from the eradication programme.
There is still time to see this stirring exhibition before it closes on 31 October. Make your way to the Exhibition Space in the Ron Cooke Hub, Heslington East and explore for yourself the diverse stories connected to this most important episode in global medical history.
