We Were There

Dear Grand Rounds,

You might be interested in watching our upcoming “We Were There” lecture. This historical series showcases personal experiences from people who were actually involved in sentinel CDC investigations, such as HIV/AIDS, Polio, and Legionnaires’ disease. Enjoy this rare opportunity to hear insights and personal experiences directly from the people who led these investigations.

Our next session will be available via live webcast from CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, October 19, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (ET). Open captions are provided.

“We Were There” Presents
“Toxic Shock Syndrome: A Lasting Legacy”

Join us to hear how a disease outbreak associated with tampon-use sickened healthy women in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Listen to CDC’s original disease detectives describe how they unraveled the link between Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) and high-absorbency tampons. Learn how their investigations substantially decreased TSS cases and had a lasting impact on public health confidentiality.
