The Historical Legacy of Public Health and Eugenics

11:45 am - 1 pm - Room 170

Speaker:

Paul A. Lombardo

Bobby Lee Cook Professor of Law

Description:

The eugenics movement provided the motive force for over 100 laws passed in the US.  They included restrictions on marriage and immigration, screening for STIs, and mandates for eugenic sterilization. Prominent members of the public health community supported each type of 20th Century eugenic legislation.   Since heredity is invoked today as a key factor affecting public health, this history remains very relevant to public health professionals.
