Dr. Steven Jay, Professor of Medicine, IUSM, and Professor, Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health, will speak. Changes in the language of tuberculosis in 19th-century America and western Europe provide insights into the complex system of "adoption and diffusion of innovations" described by Fleck (1935) and Rogers (1962). Dr. Jay will offer preliminary data regarding how the medical and lay literature reflected changes in the science and language of tuberculosis.
