Happy 200th Birthday, John Snow


Today is the 200th anniversary of the birth of John Snow – the Father of Public Health and modern epidemiology. The LIVESTRONG Foundation is home to several staffers with Masters of Public Health degrees (MPH) and therefore home to many diehard John Snow “fans”. Below are three such fans (Cameron Krier, Haley Gardiner and Devon McGoldrick) sharing why they believe John Snow is the original public health rock star.

Happy Birthday, John Snow!
