Det skal I lave

Join me for a walking tour through Philadelphia's hidden landmarks that tell the story of the rise of modern medicine and psychiatry in America. On this walk, we'll explore how epidemics of Philadelphia's past have informed our present-day understanding of disease, society, and the human mind. Among the stops, we’ll visit a hidden moat, find a few forgotten graves and experience America’s oldest continuously inhabited residential street in a totally unexpected way. Philadelphia is a hub for modern healthcare and research today, but it has always been a leader in medicine, from establishing the first hospital on colonial territory to its stake on the front lines of combating HIV/AIDS. The city is rich with hidden stories that add a different lens to a well-traversed history, when viewed through some of the biggest threats to public health and mankind.

Hi. I’m Elana, a member of the Atlas Obscura community. I’m a journalist and audio producer who has covered everything from smallpox in the age of Benjamin Franklin to drug use in the age of fentanyl. I helped launch WHYY's health and science show, "The Pulse," in Philadelphia and am a contributor to PRI’s The World, NPR, and Kaiser Health News. My stories about body snatching and Legionnaires' disease have been featured on the popular podcasts "Criminal" and "99% Invisible." Most recently, I’ve been researching public health, neuroscience, and addiction as a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at MIT.
