Have you ever wondered where a disease begins? Dr. Mary K. Sandford will be providing insight into how physical anthropologists learn about the history of disease from the bones and mummies of past peoples.
Dr. Sandford will present her research at Emory & Henry College, free of charge, beginning at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 5, in McGlothlin-Street Hall, Room 102.
Based on research conducted in North America, the Sudan and the Caribbean, her talk explores rates of traumatic injury and infectious diseases in the past, including cultural practices, diet, environmental challenges and biological evolution.
Dr. Sandford is an emerita professor at University of North Carolina - Greensboro, with a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado.
