Read the entry here […] British Columbian? Over 98? Please call
Yesterday Helen Branswell reported on a British Columbia project to interview people who recall the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-19. Dr. Danuta Skowronski was just on CBC radio talking about it, so I went to the BC Centre for Disease Control where I found this announcement: Pandemic Profiles: Are You Ninety-Eight Years or Older? Excerpt:
The BCCDC will be conducting face-to-face or telephone interviews with British Columbians who were born in 1908 or earlier and have a lasting memory of the 1918-1920 pandemic. If you know of someone who has a compelling experience and might be interested in participating in this survey, please contact Westcoast Clinical Research at 604-524-7141 or by email at wccr AT telus DOT net.
