Epidemiology for the Bottom Billion - Hans Rosling Lecture

10/8/2012 12:00 AM

The John Snow Society Pumphandle Lecture takes place in September each year when members gather to celebrate the memory of Dr John Snow and afterwards hold the annual general meeting of the Society. The lecture is traditionally accompanied by the ceremony of removing and then replacing the pump handle as a reminder of the continuing challenges to public health in water and other fields.

In part 1 of 4 of his lecture, noted Swedish medical doctor, academic, statistician and public speaker Hans Rosling traces his career as a researcher and the role of epidemiology played.
