In this series, we will focus on John Snow, one of the founders of the science of epidemiology, and also briefly cover some other medical innovators whose ground-breaking ideas have taken time to gain widespread acceptance, including: Edward Jenner, Ignaz Simmelweiss, Barry Marshall, Bennet Omalu and Sue Swedo. 

In John Snow and the Cholera Outbreak of 1854 we explore how a deadly outbreak of cholera in London, and John Snow's investigation of its cause, gave rise to the modern field of epidemiology. It's a fascinating story. Even if you've heard it before, you may find new facts and details here that we've uncovered through expert interviews and map analysis.
