When: Friday April 10, 2015, 7:00pm 

Where: Hunter College Room 714 (West Building)

It can be argued that using chlorine in drinking water created the biggest improvement in public health in modern history. Typhoid fever was not eradicated in the U.S. until the widespread use of water disinfection was realized.

Michael McGuire, PhD, is the author of The Chlorine Revolution. McGuire will recount the story of how chlorine first got introduced into municipal drinking water supplies and its ensuing critical impact in advancing 20th century public health.

Anne Seeley, M.P.H., is Section Chief of Health Assessment & Policy Coordination for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection. Seeley will talk about how NYC treats its water and why the city has such excellent quality drinking water.
