Lessons in Time: Naperville in a Crisis. History can be a guide . During this COVID -19 pandemic many are turning to the past to help us understand what is happening now and help us anticipate the future.

Dr. Ann Keating, Professor of History at North Central College and Jeanne Schultz Angel, Director of Learning Experience at Naper Settlement, join host Liz Spencer to take a look at the last 100 years of pandemics at both the national and local levels.

Lessons in Time tackles the topic by dividing it into three areas:

  • Pandemics and other diseases
  • Economics and politics
  • Outcomes

History demonstrates time and time again the resilient of the human spirit and the innovation that emerges during the most trying times.
