5/15/2017 3:30pm Biostatistics Seminar: Barbara J. Martin

Barbara J. Martin, freelance medical writer and physician consultant from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and author of Elixir: The American Tragedy of a Deadly Drug will present the Woolson Lecture “The Elixir Sulfanilamide Tragedy of 1937.”

Abstract:  At the height of the Great Depression, the mysterious deaths of children in Oklahoma sparked an unprecedented investigation of a new and powerful antibiotic elixir. In a "nationwide race with death," US government agents struggled to seize and destroy hundreds of bottles of the toxic drug before more children could be killed. Barbara J. Martin, author of Elixir: The American Tragedy of a Deadly Drug, will discuss the stunning true story of the deaths of more than 100 Americans who fell victim to this untested drug, the efforts to avert further deaths, and the parallels to similar episodes of drug poisoning that have continued into the 21st century.
