This year marks the 100th anniversary of public health in Ohio, specifically the 1919 enactment of the Hughes/Griswold Acts. After the Pandemic Flu of 1918 swept across America, these legislative acts served as the foundation for many local health departments across Ohio.
In 1919, the average life expectancy in the United States was 53.5 years for men and 56 for women. Today, American men are expected to see their 76th birthday and American women are blowing out 81 candles!
