Description

Join the Royal College of Physicians for the fifth in a series of free special lectures marking its 500th anniversary, reflecting on the history of medicine, society, scholarship and the college itself over the last five centuries.

This chapter in the astonishing story focuses on the 1900s.


Smoking and health publication, post war, RCP


Professor Virginia Berridge considers how public health concerns moved on from sanitation and contagious diseases to smoking and chronic illness in the 20th century, and the pivotal role the Royal College of Physicians played in this transformation.
