These items highlight major health-related events in Princeton’s history, such as the 1918 Spanish flu, and their impact on area nurses, hospitals, and public health concerns. Healthcare in Princeton will be broadcast live on Princeton Public Library’s Crowdcast page. Click here to register in advance or to enter the event at the start time.
