How the Cholera Epidemic of 1854, in Soho, London Lead to the Birth of Modern Epidemiology, Medical Cartography (Geographic Information Systems - GIS) in Public Healthcare, and the Development of modern Water Treatment and Wastewater Treatment Policies

Ergas, I., & New, J. (Directors). (2011). Snow. [Video]. University of Southern California.

Abstract:  "It is the summer of 1854 and a violent cholera outbreak has decimated the unseemly district of Soho, London. While the source of the outbreak remains unclear, the leading medical authorities blame the miasma, or poisonous air, which emanates from the nearby bone boiling establishments. When an unlikely physician, Dr. John Snow, uncovers an entirely different theory, he must piece together a scientific puzzle that will culminate in one historic moment, anointing Dr. John Snow as 'Father of Modern Epidemiology."
