Guest: Richard Gunderman, Professor of Medical Education, Indiana University. We’re marking the 100th anniversary this year of the armistice that ended the Great War. This also marks the 100th anniversary of the deadliest flu pandemic in recent memory, killing between 50 and 100 million people worldwide.
