Elizabeth Mosser, Assistant Professor of Psychology, HCC, M.A., Ohio State University
Tuesday, May 1, 2018
12:30 - 1:30 PM

Why does that person who coughs all the time annoy us so much? Why do we fear Ebola so much more than influenza? While our attitudes toward the sick may seem very individual and based in personal experience, psychological studies reveal how we as a society react to the apparent threat of infectious disease, and researchers have interesting theories about why we may react the way we do. Psychology professor and exhibit co-curator Elizabeth Mosser will demonstrate some of our psychological quirks in the realm of health, both individual and public.
