Date: July 11, 2019
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM MDT
Broomfield Depot Museum
Event Description:
Speaker: Jeanne Abrams

More people migrated to Colorado in search of health, rather than wealth. Because of its high altitude and favorable climate, health seekers flocked to the state in the late 19th and early 20th century in hopes of curing tuberculosis, the leading cause of illness and death in America at that time. Dr. Abrams explores life for TB patients, treatment options and the impact of health seekers in early Denver.
